Aliaksandr Kirylau, an activist of unregistered Belarusian Conservative Party "Belaya Rus", visited Vitsebsk City Executive Committee in order to file an application for picketing. However, the head of the citizens' applications department refused to explain how such applications are to be filled.

As a result, Mr. Kirylau made an entry in the complaint book and filed an appeal with Vitsebsk Region Procuracy.

The planned picket was a part of the party's campaign under the common slogan "Paupers, unemployed and victims of political lawlessness – unite!"
