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 activists have been jailed for different terms, varying from 3 to 8 years in prison.

In August 2012 the International of Anarchist Federations asked for solidarity demos:

“We call everybody to protest against these tortures and demand the immediate liberation of the political prisoners of Belarus, including anarchists.”
