Mrs Maira Mora, the Head of the European Union Delegation to Belarus, informed that she is in constant contact with the wife and the mother of a political prisoner, Sergei Kavalenka. His situation was a topic of her conversation with the Belarusian authorities. Currently there are conducted discussions on the new steps that can be taken to help the Belarusian oppositionist.
Last week, after spending 16 days in solitary confinement in Mahilou colony, Kavalenka was moved to the prison hospital. So far nothing is known about the state of Kavalenka’s health. It must be noted that for several months he led the hunger protest against the illegal arrest.
