Two youth activists who had been detained during the forced dispersal of the protest action against the arrival of the Russian troops in Belarus within the frames of the strategic training Zapad-2009 and beaten by police, addressed the prosecutor’s office with the demand to hold a check-up and bring the guilty to account.

In their complaints Maxim Serhiyets and Aliaksei Sianchyla present a detailed description of the behavior of the police officers. Irrespective of the conclusions of the prosecutor’s office, these documents will remain in the historical annals as eloquent evidence against the last dictatorship in Europe.
