Over the past five years there have been many political prisoners in Belarus. They were much talked about in Poland and in Europe, although one got much news about some persons while others were less popular. Statkevich was among the prisoners whom the public heard little of.
The initiative group to nominate Anatol Lyabedzka, the leader of the United Civic Party of Belarus (UCPB), a presidential candidate held the picket “Which job should Lukashenka be slotted into?” in Minsk
Camera of Belsat TV was installed in front of the picket with the collectors of signatures for Alyaksandr Lukashenka. Supporters of the incumbent president were clearly bored: they were rarely approached, and in fact members of the nominating group were not too eager to encourage voters.
The closer it is to the election, the more alive is the political life in Belarus. Women candidates who are not ready to call people to the square and parasite candidate, whom saw the spirit of Pazniak, attempted to present themselves.
