"The events of the past few days, for which we have watched carefully the command of our organization plunged into a state of shock and bewilderment caused by the negative reaction to a month to combat homophobia, including representatives of the democratic movement in Belarus. Such a reaction, in our opinion, is the result of a totalitarian mentality and intolerance, unfortunately, locked in such examples in modern Belarusian society in relation to individual social groups. We - the organization calling itself the goal of human rights and opposes any kind of discrimination - had expressed serious concern with regard to the emerging trends in Belarus ". -- Said in a statement today which was addressed to the organizers Mesyachnika against homophobia in Belarus.
