With the onset of the cold season, the radiators suddenly stopped working in the cell of the political prisoner, former presidential candidate Mikalai Statkevich. Heating has been missing in this and the two neighboring cells for more than 4 days.

This is allegedly connected to an accident. However, it is hard for me to imagine an accident in heating which could affect only three cells. The only think Mikalai noted is that he was given one more blanked. However, it can be used only at night, whereas in the daytime the authorities vigilantly watch him so that he couldn't use anything to warm himself up, and even tried to impose a penalty on him for improper dress code.

In addition, Mar
yna Adamovich found from a letter from Mikalai Statkevich, that the prison authorities started regular searches in his cell, including in the night time. “They are again trying to knock him off his balance using such mean tricks," said Maryna Adamovich.
