Arciom Prakapienka’s parents try to convince him to sign a request for clemency. They believe that it is the only way Arciom can be released from the colony before the end of his sentence. Political prisoner denied categorically.
– We had a conversation with him, during which I tried to persuade him to sign a request for clemency. And he said, that he do not even want to hear about it. I’m going to visit him some time soon, maybe then I will be able to convince him. I doubt that he will be released without this request. I thought maybe the parents can write such requests, but it turned out that it is impossible – Violetta Prakapienka, Arciom’s mother, said.
