On 14 December the Mahiliou Region Court turned down the appeal of Liudmila Kavylkina and Larysa Shukaila, observers of the election campaign “For Free Elections!” against the verdict of the Leninski District Court of Mahiliou.

The matter is that the observers had accused the head of the head of an election commission Iryna Ziamtsova of being in inebriated state during the Election Day, 19 December. Ziamtsova sued the observers. As a result, the Leninski District Court of Mahiliou sentenced them to pay fines of 525,000 rubles. Ziamtsova exacted 300,000 from each of the women with the court assistance. The counter-claim, filed by Liudmila Kavylkina and Larysa Shukaila, was declined.
