Hrodna city executive officials have banned the holding of a series of pickets in support of retaining Polish-language education at a local secondary school attended by representatives of the city’s Polish minority.

The pickets were aimed at expressing public protest at eliminating Polish classes in the school, which are said to be replaced by Russian courses.

The ban refers to the campaigners’ failure to sign contracts with local medical, police and housing services.
