“We want to inform Babruisk residents that there are no fair elections in Belarus. If the authorities allow us picket at the central market, we will prepare leaflets and will talk to the people,” says one of the action organizers, the head of the Babruisk organization of the United Civil Party Viktar Buzinayeu.

“However, it’s worth noting that there was an attempt to pressurize one of the picket organizers, Valery Mikitka, with the assistance of the ideologist at his work. The ideologist summonsed our activist to his office, asked him about his party affiliation and attitude to the authorities. He was also interest whether Valery Mikitka believed that there would be changes in Belarus.”
