Siarhei Dziatsuk was accused and convicted of violence or threat of violence against a police officer (Article 364 of the Criminal Code).

On March 5, 2021, police searched the apartment of Dziatsuk's mother Siarhei. According to the Ministry of Internal Affairs, on February 28, several women held a picket with white-red-white flags and a poster reading "Woman fighters from all over the world! Congratulations on March 8." The woman did not want to give her phone to the police, and her 35-year-old son Siarhei, who was at home at the time, tried to defend his mother.
