Euroradio reported earlier in the evening of September 3 the police detained an activist with the opposition Belarusian Christian Democracy party who was collecting signatures to ban the broadcasts of Russian TV channels on the territory of Belarus. In the view of Belarusian Christian Democracy, since Russian television channels disseminate lies about the Russian-Ukrainian conflict, they should be banned in Belarus. 

Together with the activist the police also detained a TV crew of freelance journalists. All of them spent two hours at a police station. They were let go at around 2100 Belarus time.
