Christian Democratic Movement denied registration
However, the current Belarusian authorities did not pass this test for liberalization. In January 2016 the Ministry of Justice denied registration of the CDM on the reason "that it wants to protect rights and interests of the Belarusian citizens". There is no logic in formulations of the Ministry, as it is mainly reflects the position of the regime in Belarus to stop all uncontrolled public activities.
The CDM, however, will continue its campaigns to make the life of Belarusians better, such as reducing the effects of alcoholic catastrophe and promoting the Belarusian language and culture in educational institutions.
