As Viktar Dmitrievich himself emphasized in a conversation with lawyer Alexander Pylchenko, Yuri did not belong to the scope of decision-makers, he never received any instructions from Viktor Dmitrievich, didn’t have any individual conversations with him. Yuri was a member of the initiative group for signature collection. He is not an authorized representative.
Viktar Babaryka laid stress on the fact that the participants of the meeting in the KGB pre-trial detention center did not delegate authority to conduct a dialogue or speak on their behalf.
We feel empathy for Yuri and all the people who are being used by the government in their illegal games by blackmail and violence. We are glad that several innocent people have been gone at large, but there are still hundreds of people in prisons who should not be there.
