Belarusian Activist Fined For Streaming Event In Memory Of Mikhail Zhyzneuski


The Belarusian “court” has regarded the streaming as participation in an unauthorized rally.

Activist Dzmitry Kazakevich was fined 30 basic units (765 rubles) for streaming a rally to pay tribute to the Hero of Ukraine Mikhail Zhyzneuski.

Politician Pavel Seviarynets has reported it on his Facebook page.

The Tsentralny district court of Minsk considered that the video recording was participation in an unsanctioned rally, and found Kazakevich guilty of violating Article 23.34 of the Administrative Code.

We remind that in the evening of January 22, the Young Front held a rally (floral offerings) at the monument to Taras Shevchenko in Minsk to pay tribute to the memory of the Hero of Ukraine, Belarusian Mikhail Zhyzneuski, who was killed at the Maidan.

After the rally was over, police officers detained two of its participants, Volha Nikalaichyk and Dzianis Urbanovich. They were taken to the Tsentralny district police department, then to the detention center in Akrestsin street, and the trial was held the next day. As a result, Tsentralny district court judge Shabunia punished the activists with heavy fines (50 and 40 basic units).
