Zmitser Dashkevich: Sannikov faced most cruel treatment

Political prisoner Zmitser Dashkevich has sent a letter from prison. The leader of Young Front writes about the situation of Belarusian presidential candidate Andrei Sannikov.

"Having applied for a pardon, Sannikov made the only right and possible choice in his situation. With due respect for Uss and other brave people who suffered from prosecution for the 2010 'election', they did not see one tenth of the violence, physical and moral humiliation that Andrei Sannikov went through. Besides, there's a real threat to the life and health of his family. Under such circumstances, it would be a duty of everyone to protect his dearest and nearest by all possible means.

If anyone came to me and threatened my beloved people directly or by hints, I would sign any paper, including about a bucket with rats and a car with metal bars. There are no politicians in Belarus who went through what Sannikov had to go through. There are no people who have a minimum right to criticize him", Zmitser Dashkevich wrote.
