The administrations of two Vitsebsk schools #40 and #43 refused to post the election leaflets of Aliaksandr Kuzniatsou, Belarusian Popular Front member, running for the Vitsebsk Regional Council, after the posters were found ‘ruffian-like’. The officials argued that the posters had a picture of a New Year tree with a white-red-white national flag on top of it, which was considered inadmissible.

The politician believes that his rights to election canvassing were violated and lodged a complaint with the regional election commission.
