Celebration of 500th anniversary of Orsha Battle banned

Local officials did not give consent for carrying of festivals and concerts on on the Krapivenski field on 6 September. According to Kupava, refusal is based on the "wrong registration of application": the sources of financing were not indicated, provision of ambulance was not included in the application.

Now the organizing committee will consider other options of the battle anniversary clebrations, informs Nasha Niva
