Servicemen detained a man in civilian clothes. There were plenty of servicemen and policemen in the area. The detainee resisted at the beginning. Servicemen forced him to the ground and dragged him. The man had what appears to be something on this left arm (a splint?) and declared repeatedly that he had not violated anything. People around demanded to free the detainee and not to break his arm. The chief of Zhodino GOVD in civilian clothes with a radio station was present there.
