The fact that Vasil Parfiankou again got in an isolation ward said activist Volha Mikalaichyk, who is in correspondence with the political prisoner.
"In his last letter he said that he had received a letter from me with magazines and newspapers, and most importantly, that had spent 12 days in the isolation ward. And then again silence from him, from which I can say that he is apparently punished again and in addition sent to the isolation ward. He also wrote that, thank God, there is little time of his sentence is left - just two months. "
The reason why Vasil Parfiankou is punished by the isolation ward is unknown for Volha Mikalaichyk. Activist recalled the situation with political prisoner Ihar Alinevich. Recently it turned out that in the colony "Vitsba-3" he was punished by the isolation ward for refusing to wash the toilet, as it may cause him to lose status in the prison. Volha Mikalaichyk is saying that Vasil Parfiankou could do the same.

Political prisoner, who was in the ward-type room, doesn’t expect to come back to the usual detachment before the release.

"Basil wrote that he won’t be transferred to the usual prison that will stay till the end of the sentence in the separate ward-type room. But he doesn’t feel sorrow for this. Says he doesn’t want to move, he doesn’t want to come back to the prison where there are new people and provocations that are pretty normal thing there. Says that he used to be alone. "
Vasil Parfiankou is serving a year of imprisonment in Gorki colony. He was punished for violation of preventive supervision, which he received after being detained for many actions of solidarity with political prisoners - participants of a protest meeting against rigged elections of December 19, 2010.
