In the evening of 31 October a police inspector paid a visit to Yury Hryniavetski, the leader of the Babruisk social democrats. He warned the activist against participation in unauthorized mass events, handing out printed editions without imprint, etc.

The police inspector wanted Mr. Hryniavetski to sign the warning, but the latter refused to do it. “I haven't done anything, yet I am warned already,” he commented.

Earlier, on 27 October, the police made a similar visit to the apartment of another activist of the Belarusian Social Democratic Hramada, Stanislau Kavaleuski, but he refused to sign the warning as well.
