On 15 January, Minsk police detained volunteers of a charitable campaign who distributed free food to the homeless outside the Uskhod metro station.

The reasons for the detention are unknown.

The activists were later released without charges. However, they were warned of possible administrative prosecution in case of similar violations in future.
