The political prisoner must feel that he is not alone in the fight against the system.

"Belarusian political prisoner Dzmitry Palienka has come under pressure from the administration of the Babruisk colony, which regularly throws him into the punishment cell and tries to isolate him from other convicts. The investigation department has stepped up as well. Dzmitry needs our solidarity now," – public activist Dzianis Kazakevich wrote on Facebook.

"You can send Dzmitry a postcard or remind influential Western politicians about him, or do both.

Here is the address:

Palienka Dzmitry

1 Sikorski Street, Correctional Colony No. 2, Detachment 9

Babruisk

213800
