Youths of the United Civic Party have asked the Minsk City Executive Committee to name a street in the city after opposition politician Yury Zakharanka who disappeared in 1999.

On January 4, the day of Mr. Zakharanka`s 56th birthday, members of the party`s Young Democrats organization visited Mahilyowskaya Street in Minsk where the politician is believed to have been kidnapped.

Young Democrats deputy head Mikhail Pashkevich told BelaPAN that Mr. Zakharanka had been the first interior minister after the first presidential election held in 1994 and deserved to have a street named after him.
