The duty policeman of the detention center located in Akrestsin Street in Minsk Haduntsou and the police sergeant-major Korbel refused to accept the food parcels for the Russian citizens Nikolay Zboroshenko and Ekaterina Vinokurova and the Belarusian citizen Viktar Simanovich, who are spending their arrest terms to which they were sentenced for participation in the action that had taken place near the Russian Embassy in Minsk on 22 July. Haduntsou and Korbel stated to the youth activist Krystsina Shatsikava they wouldn’t accept any parcels from her, because she wasn’t a relative to the prisoners.

-- I explained to them that the chair of the detention center permitted me to take the parcels, because their relatives can’t come to Minsk’, - said Ms. Shatsikava to the press-service of the United Civil Party. The sergeant-major answered it wasn’t his concern.

The chair of the detention center is absent. Krystsina was informed that he would come at 6 p.m., but also said that after 6 p.m. no food parcels are accepted.

We should remind that on 26 July the judge of Tsentralny borough court of Minsk Valery Esman sentenced Nikolay Zboroshenko to 15 days of arrest and Ekaterina Vinokurova and Viktar Simanovich – to 10 days of arrest for picketing the Russian Embassy in Minsk.

The youngsters held the transparency ?#152;Life sentence to Lukashenka’ and chanted: ?#152;Russia without Putin, Belarus without Lukashenka!’, ?#152;We need other Russia, we need other Belarus!’ and ?#152;Stop supporting the Belarusian dictator!’.
