Political refugee Yury Rubtsou is likely to return to Belarus after a failed asylum seeking attempt in Germany.

The country hopes that October 11 presidential election in Belarus will correspond to the OSCE/ODIRH standards.

It is hard to recognize the ex-political prisoner.

The EU expects the Belarusian authorities to lift all the restrictions imposed on the released prisoners’ civil and political rights.

Alyaksandr Lukashenka pardoned six political prisoners on August 22.

European Belarus activists get locked up for manifesting solidarity with Yury Rubtsou.

They hung out the banner in support of the political prisoner on Friday evening in Lahoiski Road near the store Hippo.

His sentence is considered to be part of the long term campaign of persecution of civil activists.

Public activist has been found guilty of "evading punishment."
