Dzianis Sakhar, an activist of the organizing committee of the National-Bolshevik Party, was fined 1,050,000 rubles.

Sakhar was detained at home by police at 7:30 a.m. on 12 December. His friends did not know his whereabouts for a long time. Neither the police department nor the Pershamaiski District Court of Minsk confirmed his detention. It later became known that a trial was held at the Pershamaiski District Court, where Sakhar was fined for “disorderly conduct” – an action organized by National Bolsheviks on 3 December near the headquarters of the Belarusian TV and Radio Company in Minsk. On that day a group of young activists distributed leaflets and poured a bucket of noodles at the main entrance to the building. (A Russian expression: to hang noodles on somebody’s ears means “to tell bold lies”).
