Mikita Jemialjanau | Nikita Emelyanov

Anarchist from Minsk. He was detained on October 19 together with Ivan Komar on suspicion of the attempt to set fire to Minsk pretrial detention centre (article 295-3 “Illegal actions with combustible substances” and article 344 “Intentional destruction or damage of historical and cultural values”) in solidarity with Dzmitry Palijenka, who was kept there under arrest at that time. Later the charges were also brought for another unsuccessful attack on the same pretrial detention centre (article 295-3 “Illegal actions with combustible substances” and article 344 “Intentional destruction or damage to historical and cultural property”), as well as for throwing paint at the Minsk city court in solidarity with Dzmitry Palijenka (article 341 “Desecration of buildings and destruction of property”).

On February 12, 2020 Mikita Jemialjanau and Ivan Komar were found guilty and sentenced to 7 years of prison each.

On March 27, 2020, the appellate court commuted the sentence of Mikita Jemialjanau to 4 years, that of Ivan Komar – to 3.5 years of imprisonment.

Ivan Komar bears false witness against Jemialjanau, so ABC-Belarus does not support him. Komar was amnestied in January 2022.

On 11 March 2022, Mikita was sentenced to 2 more years in prison for gross violation of prison rules.
