Police officers took cameraman Ales Lyubianchuk and journalist Maria Artsybasheva to the police station. Along with them is the ex-presidential candidate Niakliaeu.

"We were detained, when we did an interview with Uladzimir Niakliayeu. The police didn’t like that we were shooting something. Officially, we were taken just for checking - now they are checking if we are in the criminal investigation, "- said in a telephone conversation Ales Lyubianchuk.

Journalists were detained by the policeman of the Soviet District police department Yuri Chyrkou.

About an hour after the arrest the journalists and politician were released without protocols and without any confiscation.
