  • Independent journalist Aliaksandr Ihnatsiuk arrested

    Aliaksandr Ihnatsiuk, a freelance journalist and video blogger from Pinsk, was detained some time ago, the Brest office of Viasna HRC reports.

    The jour­nal­ist owns the web­site and Tik­Tok page about the Stolin town.

    His arrest was not report­ed for a long time since he has been liv­ing in seclu­sion for some time. Ali­ak­san­dr’s friends were wor­ried that he had been out of con­tact for a long time.

    Ali­ak­san­dr Ihnat­siuk is held in Brest remand cen­ter. Human rights activists think he might face charges under Arti­cle 361–4 of the Crim­i­nal Code for pro­mot­ing extrem­ist activ­i­ty.
