Siarhei Tsikhanouski.

Siarhei Tsikhanouski mentioned that it is dangerous to correspond with political prisoners in Belarus in one of his letters to a friend. The police began to visit many of those who wrote letters to Siarhei Tsikhanouski in prison, questioning why they are doing this.

Today, on 2 June, those detained together with Siarhei Tsikhanouski as a result of a provocation at the pre-election picket on 29 May 2020 in Hrodna were convicted. Dzmitry Furmanau was sentenced to 2 years in prison, Yauhen Raznichenka received 3.5 years, and Uladzimir Kniha received 4 years behind bars. They were found guilty of active participation in actions that grossly violated public order. The defendants did not plead guilty and called the criminal case a provocation.
