Youth leader Ales Kalita will be released from jail today, on July 18th, at 2 p.m. He spent 15 days in Akrestsina jail.

As we reported earlier, Ales Kalita was detained on July 3rd, near the office of BPF Party and sentenced to 15 days of arrest. He only tried to defend a girl, member of BPF Youth council Nasta Aleksandrovich from defenders of the regime dressed in civil clothes. He was charged under Article 17.1 of the Administrative Code (disorderly conduct).


The family, friends, and representatives of the democratic community will come to meet the youth activist.
