Maria Kolesnikova accused of endangering Belarus’ national security – Abroad – News

The Belarusian Criminal Code provides for two to five years’ imprisonment for such a crime, Russian media Medusa reported.

Maria Kolesnikov, one of the most visible leaders of the protest movement, was first abducted on the streets of Minsk last week, but then tried to force her out of Belarus, but she resisted and tore up her passport before crossing the border to prevent her from entering Ukrainian territory.

Kolesnikov was then taken to a solitary confinement in Minsk.

As Kolesnikov’s lawyer told last week, Kolesnikov was threatened with killing by Belarusian forces.
