Mikalai Autukhovich has meeting with relatives for first time this year
They were allowed to have a 1.5-hour phone conversation through the glass barrier.
“It's only called a meeting,” Autukhovich says, “We were not allowed to touch or kiss each other. You cannot do anything. It will go away, but memories will live in your soul forever. I don't doubt the guilty people will answer one day for this ordeal... My term expires in less than 20 months.”
The political prisoner says he reads a lot, writes letters and tries to learn English in prison.
