Anarchist Black Cross is starting to collect money for Dzmitry Rezanovich case. For now around 1 000 dollars were already paid to his lawyer, who after figuring out the political background of the case took twice more money for his work. The whole picture is not clear on amount of money that will be required for this case as there is a possibility of prosecution for Dzmitry in Belarus after deportation from Russia. It is also not clear how long will it take for Russian authorities to deport Dzmitry – for now 1 000 dollars is lawyer work for only one month.

Anarchist from Gomel – Dzmitry Rezanovich – was detained on March 13-14 by Russian security forces when he tried to cross Russian-Ukrainian border. He is now at one of the Kursk pre-trial facilities, relatives are not allowed to visit him. It’s not yet clear what was the reason for detention. He had the passport of his brother, but it looks like the special services were not interested in this misdemeanor, they allegedly suspect him of a conspiracy to launch an attack on Kursk nuclear power plant as well as participation in Maidan protests.
We think this story is connected with the Russian hysteria about possible war with the Ukraine and expected diversive acts from Ukrainian side.
In March two antifascists from Brest, Belarus were found guilty of attacking local neonazis.
Dzmitry Stsyashenka was accused of aggravated hooliganism for threatening to attack a neonazi with a knife last summer. He was sentenced to 4 years of custodial restraint.
Dzmitry Zvan’ko was accused of malicious bodily harm inflicted to a group of neonazis, who provoked antifascists on May 8, 2013. He was sentenced to 5 years of colony with reinforced regime. More on this story http://abc-belarus.org/?p=3156&lang=en
Both court sessions were closed because the complainants asked so.
