Ukrainian flag to be destroyed in Baranavichy (photo)


Uladzimir Hundar approached the cinema house Kastrychnik in Baranavichy on March 4. He was holding the poster ‘Putin’s aggressive gangs – hands off from Ukraine and Belarus! and a Ukrainian flag. The activist was fined for 1 million 950 thousand roubles for the action.

‘The material evidence’ was preserved until the trial. Then the judge decided that it was necessary ‘to destroy the material evidence – the poster and the Ukrainian flag’. The court’s decision cannot be appealed. 

The decision insults the state symbol of the neighbouring state which is not good for Belarus-Ukraine brotherly relations, head of Baranavichy TBM affiliate Victar Syrysta thinks.
