In this country, this activity is considered "extremist" and can be punished according to articles of the Criminal Code.

Pavel Piskun, the main defendant, filmed Russian military equipment from his cellphone on February 27.

According to the Belarusian NGO Viasna, he published the video on the social network Telegram with the following information: the number of tanks, their direction and the different models of the “tanks”.

The man did it again on March 1 and 2 by posting new videos deemed extremist by the Regional Court of Homiel.

Despite the fact that he is a minor, the accused received an adult sentence, considering the “seriousness” of the acts committed, said the judge.
