Dzmitry Krautsou is a resident of Drybin sentenced to three months in prison under Article 370 of the Criminal Code (insulting the state symbols).
The reason behind the conviction was the changed image of the state emblem displayed on a YouTube channel co-run by Krautsou and Viktoryia Zhardzetskaya (another defendant in the case) "in order to make their channel popular and demonstrate their blasphemous attitude." The defendants later used the image as the logo of their Telegam and Youtube channels, as well as in the videos they uploaded to their channel.
