Officers of the Mahiliou City Executive Committee pay visits to the dwellers of hostel in Budaunikou Street 7 who signed the appeal of civil activist Aliaksei Paulouski, threatening them with negative consequences.

The appeal to the local authorities contained protests against the growth of prices and the request to dismiss the head of the Central Election Commission Lidziya Yarmoshyna from her position. It was signed by more than 100 people.

According to Mr. Paulouski, despite pressurization from the side of the authorities, the people refuse to revoke their signatures. “The people have the constitutional right to freedom of thought, which they use, whereas the officials violate it. They try to pressurize the people reminding that they live in the hostel of a state organization and work at state organizations,” emphasizes Aliaksei Paulouski. Now he is also preparing an address to the officials in connection with this incident.
