Democratic activist Ihar Lishtvan has been detained in the town of Maladzechna.
The young man was detained as he was walking with a national white-red-white flag and poster “September 19 – day of national symbols”. He wanted to mark the Day of National Symbols of Belarus in such a way.
The guy walked with the flag through the city. Police detained him near a picket of pro-governmental youth organization BRSM, which called on people to vote in the “election” on September 23, ffight.org reports.
It's worth noting that Ihar Lishtvan is a minor. He is only 16 years old.
