The civil activist Ryhor Hryk collected about 40 books by Belarusian and foreign writers. On 3 December he tried to pass them to the pre-trial prison #6 in Baranavichy, where the political prisoner Vasil Parfiankou is kept.

The deputy head of the prison, major Aliaksandr Pupko, refused to call the librarian for checking and accepting the books, and stated that “our institution does not need books”.

“I know that the political prisoner Vasil Parfiankou is serving another term in the Baranavichy prison. Artsiom Babei, Viachaslau Sukharebski and other have repeatedly written letters to him, but have received no answers. I hoped that at least books would be accepted for him and other prisoners,” commented Mr. Hryk.
