Amnesty International: Surapin's arrest is most absurd arrest of the year

The Belarusian incident tops the rating. The journalist was the first person to have uploaded photos of "the teddy bear landing" performed by a Swedish plane in Minsk and Ivyanets on July 4.

KGB investigators arrested Surapin on suspicion of helping the Swedes cross the Belarusian border. He was released on recognizance later. Andrei does not know what is to become of his case.
