Vadzim Sychyk is a resident of Biaroza sentenced by the court of Biaroza district to one year of restricted freedom in an open correctional facility under Part 1 of Article 339 of the Criminal Code (hooliganism).

According to the indictment, on August 10, 2020, Vadzim Sychyk threw an unidentified object and broke the side window of a bus carrying police officers. His actions caused property damage of 270 rubles.

The accused admitted his guilt in part: he did not deny throwing the object at the bus, but said that he had no hooliganism intentions. He said he threw a lighter at the bus after it stopped working and he wanted to dispose of it. The lid hit the passing bus, as a result.

Prior to the verdict, Vadzim Sychyk had been in custody since December 11. After the verdict was announced, he was released in the courtroom to await an appeal hearing, which he later lost. In early May, 2021, he began serving his sentence in penitentiary No. 29 in Vaŭkavysk.
