The chairman of the “Dziatko-stroi” enterprise, Andrei Dziadko, filed a lawsuit for protection of honor and dignity, in which he demands to exact 30 million rubles in damages from Mikalai Ulasevich, a leader of the civil campaign” Astravets Nuclear Power Plant Is a Crime”.  Mikalai Ulasevich is sure that this is a part of the campaign of persecution for his active campaign against the construction of the Nuclear Power Plant near the town of Varniany in the Astravets district.

According to Mr. Ulasevich, the real reason for the trial is his appeal against the abuse of office powers by the Chairman of the Astravets District Executive Committee, Adam Kavalko. The appeal was directed to the General Procuracy and the Security Council in April 2011. As a result, one of the persons mentioned in the appeal, Andrei Dziadko, who, to Ulasevich’s mind, repeatedly received preferences from Kavalko, sued Ulasevich.

The trial was postponed to 30 November after Mikola Ulasevich made a number of solicitations.
