Yuliya Bodak is a resident of Brest charged with hooliganism under Part 2 of Art. 339 of the Criminal Code.

According to the charge, on October 23, 2020, Yuliya Bodak, together with several other persons, made an effigy, which was later “displayed in public as the President of the Republic of Belarus.” The effigy bore two sheets of paper on which an unidentified person wrote, “He stole votes” and “He convicted the innocent”. It was then hung on a tree outside Brest. Thus, according to the investigation, Yuliya Bodak committed a crime under Part 2 of Art. 339 of the Criminal Code (hooliganism), i.e. intentional actions committed by a group of persons grossly violating public order, expressing clear disrespect for society and characterized by extreme cynicism.

The woman was placed under house arrest.

On April 1, 2021, Judge Inna Klyshpach of the Maskoŭski District Court of Brest sentenced Bodak to three years of restricted freedom (“home imprisonment”).
