#### Streszczenie

Let $X$ be a countable discrete Abelian group, ${\rm Aut} (X)$ the set of automorphisms of $X$, and $I(X)$ the set of idempotent distributions on $X$. Assume that $\alpha_1, \alpha_2, \beta_1, \beta_2 \in {\rm Aut} (X)$ satisfy $\beta_1\alpha_1^{-1} \pm \beta_2\alpha_2^{-1} \in {\rm Aut} (X)$. Let $\xi_1, \xi_2$ be independent random variables with values in $X$ and distributions $\mu_1, \mu_2.$ We prove that the symmetry of the conditional distribution of $L_2 = \beta_1\xi_1 + \beta_2\xi_2$ given $L_1 = \alpha_1\xi_1 + \alpha_2\xi_2$ implies that $\mu_1, \mu_2 \in I(X)$ if and only if the group $X$ contains no elements of order two. This theorem can be considered as an analogue for discrete Abelian groups of the well-known Heyde theorem where the Gaussian distribution on the real line is characterized by the symmetry of the conditional distribution of one linear form given another.
