Five anarchists; Ihar Alinevich, Mikalai Dziadok, Artsiom Prakapenka, Pavel Syramolatau, Aliaksandr Frantskievich and another activist Jauhen Vas’kovich were arrested over the autumn of 2010 and the winter 2011. They were accused of various actions including participation in an illegal anti-militarist demonstration, physical attacks on symbols of capitalism, an attack on a KGB headquarters and hacking into government websites.
Those jailed have been sentenced to different terms varying from 3 to 8 years in prison.
