Belarus detains another Polish minority official - website
Belarusian authorities have detained the deputy head of the Union of Poles in Belarus (ZPB), Renata Dziemiańczuk, a Belarusian website has reported.
According the local Hrodna.Life website, Dziemiańczuk was detained in the western city of Grodno on Tuesday afternoon.
The information has been confirmed by the ZPB's website, znadniemna.pl.
Belarusian authorities imprisoned ZPB head Andżelika Borys and the organisation's senior official and journalist Andrzej Poczobut in March 2021. The Alexander Lukashenko regime accuses them of "incitement to national hatred" and "rehabilitation of Nazism."
Poland and the EU regard both of them as political prisoners.
The Minsk regime brutally suppressed mass protests that erupted in Belarus after the announcement of the official results of the presidential election in September 2020, allegedly won yet again by the country's strongman, Alexander Lukashenko, who has ruled Belarus for almost three decades. The Belarusian opposition and the West say the election was rigged.
