On October 10, Pyotr Ryabov was taken off the train after he had delivered a lecture in the Belarusian city of Baranavichy.

A day later, a Baranovichi court found Ryabov guilty of hooliganism and sentenced him to 6 days in prison.

Ryabov and one of his associates were charged with hooliganism. “He was accused of swearing and refusal to obey to the police requirements,” his friend says.
