According to, 36 people who have been already punished for blocking the road at the border crossing point Bruzgi in order to protest against the fuel export restrictions are called to court again. The trial will take place on 20 July.

The matter is that the Brest regional procuracy and the customs office demanded that the protesters compensated the alleged loss incurred as a result of their action, i.e. paid for the services of the riot police who had beaten them.

The people, in their turn, say they didn’t call the police there and the payment should be done by those who did.
