In the Nekrasovsky Garden in the center of St. Petersburg there was a graffiti “For your and our freedom” with one of the leaders of the Belarusian opposition Maria Kolesnikova. About it informs Telegram channel “Pyatnitsa”. “Mediazona” writesthat the utility workers painted over the drawing a few hours after the appearance.
Earlier on September 6, the Minsk Regional Court sentenced Kolesnikov to 11 years in a general regime colony. The politician was found guilty in the case of “conspiracy to seize power by unconstitutional means” for the creation of the Opposition Coordination Council. Lawyer Maksim Znak, who is already involved in this case, received 10 years of imprisonment.
Kolesnikova last year was the head of the campaign headquarters of the former head of Belgazprombank Viktor Babariko, who was considered Lukashenka’s main rival in the elections. She has been in a pre-trial detention center in Minsk since September. In the fall, against the background of mass protests, the security forces tried take her out of Minsk to “de-escalate” the situation in the republic. She was taken by force to the border with Ukraine, where she tore her passport.
