Barys Khamaida, a well-known distributor of independent press in Vitsebsk, was detained in his usual place, near house #28 in Lenin Street. Policemen stated the administration of the Chyhunachny District Police Department wanted to talk to him.

However, at the police station he had a talk with representatives of the public security department, who proposed him to sign a warning that he wouldn't hold any rallies and wouldn't come out with a white-red-white flag. Though Barys Khamaida is neither an organizer, nor an adherent of the People's Assembly, he refused to sign any papers.
