Head of Babruiskclub Patriot Mikalai Mihalkou has been released, the human rights website Viasna reports.

Mikalai Mihalkou and his son Yan were detained for the notorious patriots’ case. Both of them were accused of preparation for mass riots. They were let off on April 29.

According to Viasna, Mihalkou the elder was the last person involved in the case who was accused of preparation for mass riots. He was not charged with the creation of an illegal armed unit.
