On 14 February the judge of Tsentralny district court of Minsk Maryia Damnenka punished the opposition activist Piatro Kuzniatsou with five days of arrest for handing out the leaflets inviting people to an electoral meeting with a deputy M.Shauko and Aliaksandr Milinkevich.

It’s worth mentioning that the meeting was not allowed by the city authorities. Nevertheless, in the leaflets it was said that the meeting would take place anyway. That’s why Kuzniatsou was found guilty of having violated the order of holding mass actions (article 23.34 of the Administrative Code).
