Volunteers "Tell the Truth" Vyacheslav Fly andPaul Segawa acquitted, not finding them in violation of administrative action, which was discussed in the minutes of the police.
The events that have led to the court, took place the morning of August 5 at the railway station in Minsk. The policeman on duty Alexander Rusetskaya asked two guys to show documents.

"The lack of evidence and contradictory evidence. Yes and no part of, the evidence. Very sloppy policemen came to this case. But I think this untidiness is because people were detained on suspicion of one, and then decided not to go and something to make arrests. So this got out sideways. It is difficult to falsify evidence, which was seen in these processes. "
