Mikita Yemelyanau

Anarchist from Minsk. He was detained on October 19th 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”).

Mikita refuses to testify and pleads not guilty. His trial is expected in January 2020. Ivan Komar bears false witness against Yemelyanau, so ABC-Belarus does not support him.
