On 14 August a KGB officer paid a visit to Uladzislau Yarashou, a student of the Mahiliou State University named after Arkadz Kuliashou who collects signatures in support of the candidacy of a member of the “For Freedom” Movement Uladzimir Punchanka.

The young KGBist unexpectedly burst in Yarashou's apartment in the morning and started asking him how much he was paid for canvassing and who organized this process. He threatened Uladzislau with expulsion from the university for his participation in the electoral team of the oppositionist and proposed him to collaborate with the KGB.

The visitor who didn't introduce himself left the activist's apartment after a 20-minute talk.
