Support for the mother of Ruslan Okostko, sentenced to three years in prison

Ruslan Okostko is a former paratrooper. Walked through Salihorsk on November 15 with a BCB flag. A criminal case was initiated. He got three years of general regime colony and 2,000 Belarusian rubles material compensation to the “victim” for resisting during detention by an ROVD officer. At the moment he is in the general regime colony #3, Vitsba village. 

In the last two months Ruslan was kept in the isolation ward twice and then transferred to a cell-type room. Since late summer, his relatives have not received any calls and a letter has come once in over three months. 

They would not let him see his relatives. They put him in an isolation cell, we were told, for demanding a visit. 

He needed money to help his family. His mother lives alone. 

How much is needed?

550 € — to send food and things, to send 60 rubles monthly for purchases in the colony.
