The case of two alleged Russian protesters have been submitted to a Minsk court, Sergei Balashev, a spokesman for the Belarusian Prosecutor General's Office told reporters on Thursday.
Artyom Breus and Ivan Gaponov were previously accused of organizing last year's protest rallies in Minsk, which saw the opposition question the results of the December 19 presidential elections. Later on, the charges against the two men were reduced. They are currently charged with the participation in the mass riots, which stipulates from three to eight years behind bars.
More than 600 people were detained in Belarus during the December 19 presidential polls that secured President Alexander Lukashenko a fourth term in office.
