Raman Karanevich is a 29-year-old resident of Sluck. He has three young children. His youngest daughter is only 1 year old.

He was detained on August 10 in Sluck. After the detention, the young man was hospitalized with an injured spine. The alleged victim, police officer Ivan Hancharevich, claims that Raman hit him on the head with a rock during the detention, which resulted in bleeding. Raman admitted to have thrown the stone, but said he didn’t see where.

Raman Karanevich said in his last words:

"I would admit my guilt only that I ran away. Maybe I shouldn't have run away. But I was scared. I didn't want a conflict. I was going home to my kids. I didn't need a showdown, I was evading it. I saw a crowd of people and went home. Of what happened next, I do not consider myself guilty. I did not beat the officer. On the contrary, I tried to run away from him. I'm sorry. "

On November 13, the Sluck District Court sentenced Raman Karanevich to three years in prison.
