The politician didn’t make any demands, because the sense of his hunger-strike is clear. He wants the election results to be cancelled due to mass falsifications. Mikalai Statkevich is not going to stop his hunger strike, associates of the political prisoner told Belorusski Partizan.

Lawyer Tatsiana Stankevich saw Mikalai Statkevich only one time, when he was brought charges. She will demand to visit her client this week.

‘Mikalai Statkevich won’t stop the strike. These are his principles and beliefs. He would have gone on hungry strike in any case, it doesn’t matter whether the world had known it or not,’ his associates say.

There’s no new information about Mikalai Statkevich as well as about Ales Arestovich and Siarhei Martseliau, who are also in the KGB jail charged with organizing mass riots.
