Mr. Dashkevich hopes to get released next month, after the end of the additional one-year prison term for “malignant insubordination to the administration of the penitentiary”. He wrote about it in a letter to the Bialynichy journalist Barys Vyrvich, which he received on July 9. Letter from Zmitser Dashkievich was posted on July 3.
In th letter, Zmitser Dashkevich humorously remarks: “I am alright, still in prison. Sometimes I read the independent press and everyday “Sovetskaya Belorussiya”. I am able to utter a whole set of cliches about the “rotting capitalism” at any time of day and night. If all goes well, next month I may get out of this captivity. We’ll see by the situation, as my hopes have already let me down once”
In his letter the youth leader also expresses his skeptic attitude to the alleged “liberalization” which may take place in the country and says that “No matter how difficult and hopeless it may seem today, our time is coming, and Their ends”
As usual, he finished his letter with a quotation from the Bible: “For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: and thou shalt seek his place, and shalt not find it.” (Psalm 36:10 – Palitviazni.info.)
