According to RFE/RL

In Mahiliou the youth activist Anton Ustsimchuk has been placed to a temporary isolator, where he will spend five days.

The matte is that on 26 March Leninski court of Mahiliou sentenced him to 7 days of arrest for alleged ‘petty hooliganism’. The activist spent two days in jail before the trial. The rest he will serve now. About 12 a.m. yesterday the local police inspector took him to the isolator. Anton will be released on 5 June. It’s quite interesting that for two days the police refused to place him there without the assistance of the police inspector of the location where Mr. Ustsimchuk lives.
