Today, on 25 June the Minsk police detained two members of the unregistered ‘Young Front’ youth movement Alena Makarevich and Zmitser Yasevich, as they were distributing red-white-red flags, stickers and leaflets as part of the ‘City is Ours’ civil campaign, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty reports.

The campaign was launched on 14 May in disagreement against the reform of state symbols back in the 1995 referendum. The police have detained some 10 activists since the beginning of the campaign.
