Annual tournament among amateur teams organized by youth center “Volat” and “Zubr” movement was held in Barysau.
16 teams from different parts of the city took part in it. More than 150 young people were struggling for title of the best amateur team of Barysau and suburbs under national white-red-white flag. Team “Agregat” won the title. The second position was occupied by “Darida”, the third by “Academic”.
It is remarkable that pro-Lukashenka youth organization BRSM was trying to organize the tournament the same days. But they did not succeed. Only five teams took part in their tournament in spite of serious financial support from authorities.

We are continuing to focus our efforts on the Belarusian prisoner of conscience Mikhail Marinich.
We are campaigning for him to receive proper medical treatment, to be permitted to see his family,
