However, the head of the ideological department, Aliaksandr Kulikou, sent him a demand to present any documents which confirm their powers, instead of giving an answer.

However, the answer is quite eloquent – it shows well enough that the chief ideologist of the Vitsebsk region has no wish to discuss human rights issues.
