The Pershamaiski District Court of Minsk sentenced Uladzimir Lemesh, an activist of the "European Belarus", to pay a fine of 3 million rubles for alleged insubordination to the police (Article 23.34 of the Code of Administrative Offenses).

The activist was detained in the evening of 14 January in Minsk and guarded to the Pershamaiski District Police Department. He managed to phone his relatives and inform them about the detention, the received charges and the upcoming trial.

Bear in mind that in the night of 13-14 January another activist of the "European Belarus", Yuliya Stsiapanava, was assaulted near house by two strangers who cut her hair and then threw her in a snowdrift.
