Andrei Kim has been in the republican prison hospital since 24 April. The activist suffers from ophthalmia, which began during his detention in the pretrial detention center on Valadarski Street.
Youth activist Andrei Kim was sentenced to one and a half year of imprisonment by the Tsentralny district court of Minsk (judge Alena Illina). Andrei Kim was found guilty of participating in the unauthorised protest rally of entrepreneurs, as well as of attack against traffic militia officer Yury Sychou. But guilt of Kim wasn’t proved on the trial. Video materials, shot by the KGB, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Belarusian TV, showed Sychou was hit by another militia officer. Andrei Kim didn’t even come near to the militiaman.
