RT by @ecrgroup: For 10 months, we have not had contact with Mikola Statkevich, former candidate for the president of Belarus and a well-known figure of the democratic opposition. Ales Bialiatski, laureate of the Nobel Peace Prize-2022, sentenced to 10 years in prison, was recently placed into solitary confinement in prison.
