Matskevich was detained in August 2021.

He was charged under three articles of the Criminal Code:

  • Part 1 of Art.

    342 (active participation in group actions that grossly violate public order) for the "March of the People's Ultimatum" on October 25;

  • Part 1 of Art.

    361-1 (creation of an extremist formation) - for the platform "Assembly";

  • Part 1 of Art.

    368 (insulting Lukashenka) - for a video on the YouTube channel.

In February Uladzimir Matskevich went on a 14-day hunger strike, demanding to change the measure of restraint to a written undertaking not to leave the country, to complete the investigation and set a date for the trial.

A pastor and a lawyer were not allowed to visit him for a long time.
