Minsker Siarhei Mankevich was detained by the police after hoisting a white-red-white flag in his window, the TV channel Belsat reports. The flag was mounted inside the apartment but the window can be seen from the Ministry of Internal Affairs.


Policemen tried to enter the flat in the morning of April 25, Mankevich’s partner Iryna Shypko told journalists. The police said they would file a report about noise from the apartment, not about the flag, she said.

"I do not think there was noise, he is not such a person. I warned the policemen that he is seriously ill,” Shashko said.
