Civil activist Raman Yurhel was dismissed from the private firm “ABC”. The matter is that he spent 16 days on a sick leave during one month of work.

“Strangely enough, they counted not one, but almost 20 times of absence from work. I was dismissed from work by the firm director, Ivan Maiseyeu, on the initiative of Vasil Shcharbuk, former policeman,” commented Mr. Yurhel.

Some time before the dismissal, the activist had been informally warned that he would lose his job if he continued dealing with politics. The activist considers it as the revenge of the local security services for his human rights and socio-political activism.
