The police have started administrative cases against the activist of the anarchist movement Vyachaslau Kasineau and his wife Maryna, the couple wrote on Facebook. 

"I have received a phone call from Maskouski District Department of the Interior and learned  that an administrative case had been started against me for the distribution of extremist materials on Facebook.

I thought that it was a joke and asked for an official subpoena.

I received an SMS form the police 20 minutes later. The subpoena has been delivered to my flat, the message said.

“What can be better than new repressions before holidays, after Zmitser Paliyenka’s release and during the activation of the anarchist movement?” Kasinerau wrote.

Kasinerau’s wife Maryna has also been summoned for interrogation today. An administrative case for extremism has also been started against her.
