Lukashenko: Let's be perfectly clear- If the UK doesn't want them, why the hell should we?
The head of the Union of Poles in Belarus said as many as 50 members of the Polish minority in Belarus were detained Thursday by authorities.

Union of Poles in Belarus leader Andzelika Borys told the Polish news agency PAP the minority members were detained as nearly 100 Polish activists were traveling to Ivyanets, Belarus, to meet with members of the Polish Union in Belarus.

Borys said Belarus authorities stopped activists' vehicles and surveyed documents before detaining certain individuals.

"People were stopped on various pretexts: their cars and documents were checked, some had breathalyzer tests, others were taken for medical examinations," she added.
