Daniil Kalesnikau is a minor from Žlobin sentenced to one year and three months in a juvenile correctional facility. He was charged under Article 342 of the Criminal Code (group actions that grossly violate the public order).
On the night of August 9-10, 2020, Daniil and his father, Vital Kalesnikau, went downtown to the square. They stood there together clenching arms in the front row, together with other persons shouting slogans. The investigation believes they obstructed the movement of public transport.
Daniil's father was convicted under Article 339 of the Criminal Code (disorderly conduct) and Article 172 of the Criminal Code (involvement of a minor in an offense) for a fight with a passer-by, which took place the same evening. Later he was also charged with Article 342 of the Criminal Code.
