Dwellers of the Barysau suburb Dymki spent four years asking the authorities to save their houses from flooding. The addresses to the Barysau District Executive Committee and the Minsk Regional Executive Committee gave no results. In 2010, on the eve o the presidential election, the people applied to the Presidential Administration.

Soon afterwards a dyke was constructed, which was to have solved the problem. In December 2011 the local authorities reported about the end of the construction works. However, the houses are still flooded by subterranean waters.
