As reported by a member of the Belarusian Christian Democracy, deputy of the Pieršamajsk Rural Executive Committee Valery Bilibukha, KGB officers phoned to the Ivacevičy Forestry and asked why he had been absent from work on September 3. That day, however, he took an unpaid leave.

Valery Bilibukha also saw that people in civilian clothes were putting down the numbers of the cars at the cemetery during the funeral of Aliaksandr Charkashyn in Brest. He regards such behavior of the KGB as inadmissible interference with the private life.

Let us remind that on September 4, a representative of the KGB phoned to Mr. Charkashyn's mother and asked why the funeral had turned into an unauthorized mass event, and who allowed to bury him in the cemetery of Kamianica Žyraveckaja. Somebody also phoned to the morgue, where the body was kept before the burial.

Ales Charkashyn died while participating in the anti-terrorist operation in Ukraine.
