The activist was detained by the guards of the House of the Parliament in the evening of 6 November.

According to, on the eve of 7 November “YF” activists decided to follow the example of past opponents of the Communist ideology and spilled valerian tincture on the monument to Lenin in Nezalezhnasts Square in Minsk to organize the cats from the surrounding territories to come there and express their feelings.
