Detentions ahead of public prayer for Kurapaty near Lukashenka’s Administration


The Belarusian National Congress organized a public prayer ‘for liberation from the evil’ near the President’s Administration on the evening of April 15. The action was dedicated to the dismantling of crosses in Kurapaty. 

13 people participated in it, the TV channel Belsat reports. Activist Nina Bahinskaya brought a white-red-white flag and had the poster “Freedom to the People” on her back. The participants of the public prayer were not detained but the police warned them about responsibility for participation in unauthorized actions. 

The riot police preventively detained Yauhen Afnahel, Syarhei Sparysh and Vyachaslau Kasinerau.
