The head of the press service of the Minsk city executive committee Alexander Lastouski thus commented appeals in social networks to gather every Wednesday at October Square in Minsk and the Prosecutor General's statement on this subject:
"As the theme of this in social networks has been unwound so. And of course, that today on October Square going to hold the event. So one thing — to organize a flash mob harmless, and another thing — when the calls go to the collection in October Square, which is illegal. Since the decision of Minsk city executive committee gathering on October Square and carrying out unauthorized activities are strictly forbidden. This is clearly stated in Article 35 of the Constitution Republic of Belarus.
People come and go, pass on October Square — of course, no one against it has nothing. Appeal Prosecutor's Office and has been connected with a call to gather for unauthorized mass event. Prosecutor General's Office does not forbid anyone to assemble — I did not read this to prosecutors not look screen. So let's not act like the discussions in online media that try by renaming the citizens to divert attention from the fact that these actions are illegal. These actions are illegal.
We caution that succumbing to such calls, people are able to become members of unsanctioned event, which is an administrative offense and what provides for administrative responsibility. "
