Five civil and political activists of Hrodna applied for holding pickets "For Fair Elections without Lukashenka" in different parts of the city on 15 May.

One of the applicants, the head of the Hrodna city organization of the United Civil Party Aliaksandra Vasilevich, says that there is little hope for the authorization of the action. She didn't even receive an official answer to her application for a picket dated to the anniversary of the Chernobyl accident — she was informed about the ban by the police.
