Mikhail Dobysh is a driver based in Baranavičy. He was convicted of threatening to use violence against a police officer.

The Baranavičy District and City Court found Dobysh guilty of threatening to use violence in a grocery store on September 17, 2020 in order to obstruct legal actions by police officer I. Mitsura. The officer experienced “psychological influence and intimidation, suppression of his will through personal expression of verbal threats of physical violence, while the victim had real reason to fear the implementation of these threats.” As a result, Dobysh was sentenced to three years of restricted freedom in an open correctional facility under Art. 364 of the Criminal Code.

On July 25, 2022, a trial was held in Mahilioŭ where Judge Dzmitryi Sasnouski changed Mikhail Dobysh's custody level and ruled to transfer him to a penal colony for 10 months.
