The authorities allowed only the second event which was held at the Bolshoi Opera and Ballet Theater. More than 30 people were detained, upon arriving to Yakub Kolas Square, where... Еще part of the opposition was going to start a festive procession which had been restricted by the authorities. The Day of Will celebrates the creation of the Belarusian People's Republic in 1918.
