Some 40 protesters were reportedly detained and taken to police stations during yesterday’s Chernobyl Way opposition march.

Most of the detained protesters were eventually released without charges.

Among those detained by the police were eight members of the Russian Yabloko Party, who were also released.

A girl named Valiantsina Dvarakova was taken to Savetski District Police Department after waving a white-red-white flag from the balcony of her apartment to greet the demonstrators.

At least three persons – Young Front activists Mikhail Muski, Raman Vasilyeu and Mikalai Dzemidzenka – were charged under administrative procedures and are going to stand trials this afternoon.
