According to the prisoner’s mother, no investigation into her son’s has been recently carried out. She said that Andrei’s position has not changed – he does not admit his guilt. Andrei Haidukou, 23, is accused of treason in the form of intelligence activities.

“He has his own opinion, he is in the opposition. That is all, and what is he to blame for? Nobody of our immediate environment, and in general no sane people, in my opinion, believes it. This is just ridiculous. We do not know, of course, what they are plotting there. He does not admit his guilt and will never do, even if there is something under pressure, no one will believe it anyway, especially since we, the parents, do not doubt that he is not guilty,” says Volha Haidukova.

The KGB press-service said earlier that Haidukou was detained in the making a dead drop with data of political and economic nature, which may be of interest to foreign secret services.
