An activist Andrei Kasheuski, who had spent a month in Navinki for wearing a Ukrainian symbol, a ribbon, was taken to the Rapublican centre of mental health again.
The pretext for another hospitalization to the Republican centre of mental health was allegedly a complaint of neighbours.
On May 2 at 3 p.m. a police car arrived to the house of Kasheuski in Smalyavichi. A doctor accompanied by policemen told Kasheuski that he would be taken to Navinki. As Kasheuski managed to say on the phone, he had not been showed any documents about compulsory hospitalization. Andrei had not given his agreement for a stay in a mental hospital as well, human rights centre Viasna informs.
Just recently Andrei Kasheuski had spent a month in Navinki. The reason for that was a yellow-blue ribbon Kasheuski brought from Ukrainian Maidan. This time it is an attempt to isolate Andrei in the run-up to the World Championship through the compulsory admission to mental hospital.
It should be added that a few years ago Kasheuski was registered by a psychiatrist as he placed a white-red-white flag on his house in Smalyavichi numerous times.
