– The summons is connected with my participation in the rally in memory of the victims of Stalinist purges. The event was held in Homel on November 3. Together with other activists I laid flowers and wreaths and lit candles around the crosses that were installed in the field of mass murders of people in the years of Stalinist repressions, – said U. Shytsikau.

Let’s remind that on November 13, judge Siarhei Novikau (Homel Navabelitski court) fined the deputy chairman of the United Civil Party Vasil Paliakou with 4.5 million roubles (35 basic units) for taking part in the rally in memory of the victims of Stalinist purges.
