Action in support of Ales Bialiatski in Kiev

September 25, 2012

The collection of signatures in support of the Belarusian human rights defender Ales Bialiatski who turned 50 years on September 25 continued in the center of Kyiv.

Representatives of civil organizations proposed passers-by to sign postcards which would be sent to the prison where Bialiatski was kept.

“International human rights organizations recognized Bialiatski as a prisoner of conscience and have been demanding his release from the Belarusian authories for a long time, being convinced that his prosecution has solely political motivation,” stated to RFE/RL one of the action participants, Bohdan Ovcharuk, a representative of “Amnesty International”.
