One of the Belarusian rail partisans was accused of committing an act of terrorism for setting a fire on the railroad tracks – he tried to stop the movement of military echelons. Now he faces up to 15 years’ imprisonment.
In March 2022, political prisoner Siarhei Hlebka from Stoubtsy (Minsk region, Belarus) put two logs on the railway tracks and set them on fire to stop the movement of echelons.
It became known that Lukashenka’s Prosecutor’s Office accuses the partisan under two articles of the Criminal Code: p. 1 of Art. 289 “Act of Terrorism” and p.4 of Art. 309 “Intentional disrepair of a vehicle or communication lines”.
