They were arrested in early September on suspicion of involvement in the explosion at the Russian Embassy in Minsk, but then kept in other criminal cases. All in connection with allegations of assault on the Russian Embassy detained dozens of people.

In this case, what are accused Franzkevich and Dedok — is committing a number of crimes of vandalism in the last year.
