On 26 January, Uladzimer Kobets, former campaign chief of Andrei Sannikau, was released from the KGB prison on recognizance not to leave.

According to Mr. Kobets, the release was quite a surprise to him. “I was interrogated and then they gave me a paper on the alteration of pre-trial restrictions. Then I was released from prison”, says the politician in an interview with Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty.

Mr. Kobets said there had been a huge break in investigative activities – he had not been interrogated since the first days of his 36-day arrest.
