Andrei Levanyuk is a Brest resident who was sentenced to 1 month of arrest under the criminal case of desecration of buildings and damage to property (Article 341 of the Criminal Code).

He was found guilty of spray-painting an inscription "But deliver us from the evil one" on the facade of a residential building. At the trial, Andrei admitted that he made the inscription but noted that the building had been repeatedly "damaged" by other graffitis before, but the Housing Maintenance Service did not care. Earlier Andrei was held administratively liable for this inscription, but then it was decided that is was a criminal act.

His term started on 14 June 2021.

On July 14, Levanyuk was released after serving his sentence.
