The riot police rushed into the apartment belonging to well-known Brest blogger Siarhei Pyatruhin on the morning of August 30. He was streaming at that moment and managed to say that the police were trying to enter his place. “Guys, I am shocked,” the blogger said. A riot policeman appeared, knocked out the phone and shouted: “Down! On the floor! Quick! Face down! Put your hands behind your back!”

A criminal case for an insult (part 2, article 189 of the Criminal Code) has been started against Siarhei Pyatruhin, spring96.org reports. The blogger did not know the reason for starting the case.
