The Hrodna Regional Court has dismissed an appeal filed by a Vaukavysk opposition activist Vital Huliak, confirming the decision of the District Court.

Vital Huliak was detained by police on March 13 while staging a picket in support of Ukraine. He was displaying a Ukrainian flag and a banner saying “No to War! Putin, go away!” On March 17, the District Court fined the activist 1.3 mln rubles. The judge also ordered to destroy the materials used during the protest.

Vital Huliak intends to file a complaint with the Chairman of the Regional Court and to continue fighting for his right to freedom of expression.
