As said by Leanid Haravy, an activist of the Movement "For Freedom" who maintains correspondence with political prisoners, he received a postcard from Mikalai Statkevich in which it was written that he hadn't received the previous letter – just its envelope, with the attached note "The letter didn't pass censorship".

I don't know much about other letters, but it is at least the second case when my letter to Statkevich is liquidated. The first case happened in the penal colony in Shklou. Mr. Haravy had a copy of the letter which he sent from the town of Haradok, so he uploaded it to the local independent website so that everyone could see the information the prison administration tries to hide from political prisoner, former presidential candidate Statkevich.
