АМАП спачатку прасіў фанатаў сысці з праезджай часткі, але потым стаў проста суправаджаць шэсце. Пры гэтым фанаты скандавалі даволі агрэсіўныя крычалкі, нават абражалі міліцыянтаў.

At first, the Minsk riot police asked the fanc to leave the traffic way, but there was no reaction. The police were escorting the column; some fans used aggressive cheerleading chants and even insulted the policemen.
