Dozens of birthday cards have been sent into the remand prison in Zhodzina for Syarhei Parsyukevich, the political prisoner, by his friends and associates. The businessman turns 41 on May 14.

The action was organized by Parsyukevich’s associates, activists of “For Freedom” movement. Businessmen of Smalenski market in Vitsebsk where Syarhei had been heading the council for 2 years, took the family of the political prisoner under patronage. They decided to give financial assistance to them monthly.
