According to the information provided by the web-site of the UCP, The Supreme Court declined the appeal against the sentence made by the first instance court and the cassation court. In the Supreme Court's opinion, Mirzayanau "foresaw the consequences dangerous for the society and wanted these consequences to happen".

Fiodar Mirzayanau's mother Liudmila has stated that their family will address to the United Nations' Human Rights Committee after going through the Belarusian courts.

Bear in mind that a third-year student of the Belarusian State Economic University was sentenced to three years of imprisonment in a reinforced-security penal colony. He was released in September 2011 by the President's decree on pardon. The youngster did not fine any requests for pardon.
