Belarusian national team captain, Maria Sciakuro, has been arrested in Minsk because she was protesting against the result of the political elections and the violence of the police; this according to a post by swiss club Winterthur, which has a link with Belarusian rugby.
Belarus has not a XV women national team and maybe neither a 7s national team; Maria Sciakuro is the captain of the Snow Rugby team (they finished 6th at the last European Championship) and of the Beach Rugby team
