Former political prisoner Zmitser Dashkevich and Artsyom Leuchanka detained by police.
(UPD) They are reportedly being kept in the KGB prison in Minsk.
They were arrested in the apartment of the writer Uladzimir Arlou, Nasta, the wife of Zmitser Dashkevich, wrote about his arrest on Facebook:
“Zmiser and Artsyom have been detained. They were installing a kitchen set in the flat of the respected Uladzimir and Valyantsina Arlou. They ordered food, but instead pizza guy they had police in civilian clothes break into the flat. Syarhei Palcheuski had taken our car to get the necessary tools. The police wanted to detain him, as the car was approaching the house. Apparently, he decided not to leave the car. The car now has a smashed side window, the vehicle is open, there is no Syarhei inside”.
The writer was in Hrodna at the time, at the presentation of his book “Fatherland”.
Last night there was also arrested and brutally beaten one of the former leaders of the “White Legion” Miraslau Lazouski.
Brutal arrest of the people for unknown reasons began after Lukashenka’s statements that gunmen with weapons who were preparing a provocation had been detained in Belarus. There allegedly were training camps near Babruisk, Poland, Ukraine and Lithuania.
