Political activist Uladzimir Yukho was detained in Loshytsa suburb in Minsk during a commemorative procession in honor of victims of Stalin's repressions on 7 November.

He was taken to the Leninski District Court of Minsk on 8 November morning. However, the trial started several hours after it, as the police witnesses didn’t hurry to appear at court. The judge turned down Yukho’s petition for holding the trial in Belarusian.
