The authors of the Russian website Regnum detained in Belarus have been charged with arousing hostility (p.1 article 130 of the Criminal Code) instead of a crime committed by a group of people, Nasha Niva refers to the Investigation Committee.

BSUIR teacher Yury Paulavets, Brest school guard Dzmitry Alimkin, editor-in-chief of the magazine New Economy Syarhei Shyptenka were detained in December 2016. They are facing a fine, up to six months of imprisonment or restriction of liberty for up to 5 years now.
