The former colleague of Yauhen Vaskovich in "Babruiski Kur'yer" newspaper Alesia Skapintsava finally received the first letter from him. In this letter he didn't confirm the guess of Babruisk residents that only their letters weren't let through. In fact, his letters don't reach all addressees either.

"Pitifully enough, I don't receive your letters, though I have written earlier. I will continue writing, will be it be possible," reads the letter. Yauhen also says that his health and mood are alright and passes greetings to all fellow journalists.

Vaskovich's party colleague Taisiya Kabanchuk still hasn't received any letters from him. His grandmother stated that her grandson still hasn't received any congratulation postcards on the occasion of his birthday, 26 February, though his Babruisk colleagues and friends sent him several dozens of postcards.

"It's a pity that the censors don't let through even congratulations," says Taisiya Kabanchuk. "I am sure that the authorities make this on purpose, so that our political prisoners would remain in isolation, feeling no support."
