Allegedly he was involved in a road blockage in Brest in May 2018: anarchists then blocked three lanes of the M1 motorway, opposing the construction of a battery plant. Aliaksandr is twenty years in activism, and he used to have multiple encounters with police; he was serving an administrative arrest in early August 2020.
An international criminal organisation case was filed against Minsk activists Aliaksandr Frantskevich, Andrei Chapiuk, Akikhira Gajeuski-Khanada and Maryia Rabkova in February 2021. Law enforcers claim that the organisation had chapters in various cities and countries and was sponsored by some informal foundations. In early March, seven people were detained in Brest, and another 15 suspects, according to law enforcers, left Belarus.
On September 6, 2022, Aliaksandr was sentenced to 6 years in a reinforced regime colony and a fine of about $6,300.
