Adding this as a comment, since the English-language source does not mention this bit: one of the activists was snatched off the street into an unmarked police car, another tracked down to a private flat, and another 900 km away to the Bieszczady mountains. Wonder where this diligence went during last year’s Białystok Pride (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bia%C5%82ystok_equality_march) when neonazis were chucking pieces of cobblestone at the peaceful marchers?

EDIT: https://oko.press/kolejna-aktywistka-zatrzymana-za-teczowe-pomniki-zrobiono-widowisko-zeby-nas-zastraszyc/; don’t really have the time to make a full translation right now, but, given how scandalous the whole affair is, I wouldn’t be surprised if an “official” one from oko.press were underway already.

“The government and the security apparatus found the flags so offensive and subversive that the police arrested and handcuffed a person – one reporting at the police station regularly anyway – in the streets, carried out a search of the flat of the second activist, and made their way as far as into the Bieszczady Mountains to track down the third”.
