Vitsebsk-based activist Tatsiana Seviarynets received a letter from the Pershamaiski District Court of Vitsebsk, signed by court marshal Katsiaryna Tkachonak. According to the letter, the activist shall pay 700,000 rubles fine for the organization of an unauthorized mass event on 3 July (she just proceeded along Lenin Street in a company of friends).

The fine was imposed on Tatsiana Seviarynets on 13 July and was paid by her on 20 July. “I told them to look where they put the money. 700,000 ruble is almost the whole sum of my pension. Eventually, the court marshal promised to make an appropriate inquiry to the Vitsebsk City Executive Committee,” commented Tatsiana Seviarynets.
