An action of solidarity with the political prisoners Mikalai Autukhovich, Yury Liavonau and Uladzimir Asipenka was held in Maladzechna.

An activist of the civil campaign European Belarus and local democratic activists gathered in the centre of the city near Rodina cinema. Young people were holding portraits of political prisoners. Citizens were interested by action and asked about the Belarusian political entrepreneurs, the website informs.

Participants of the rally of solidarity called upon holding protest rallies in the streets of their cities every day at 6 p.m. Mikalai Autukhovich continues indefinite hunger strike since 16 April  with a demand to terminate the criminal case, to release him and two businessmen from Vaukavysk, Yury Liavonau and Uladzimir Asipenka, or to hold an open trial. Autukhovich suffers from pancreatitis that is why the hunger strike is a danger to his life.
