At 7 am Pavel Vinahradau, an activist of youth organisation Zmena, was detained: policemen took him from home to a watchhouse. “The question on the reason for his detention remained unanswered. They said: «You know all fully well, come directly to court,” Sviatlana Vinahradava, the detainee’s wife, said.
According to her, the arrest might well be caused by tomorrow celebrating of the City Day in Minsk. “Before every feast or top officials’ coming Pavel and other boys get arrested, it has already become a standard practice. It should be fought against but I see no ways so far,” Sviatlana said.
It has also become known that Minsk police arrested Aliaksandr Artsybashau, another Zmena activist.
