Vlad Lenko is an antifascist from Ivatsevichi (Brest region). Detained on December 27, 2014 on suspicion of taking part in a fight with local neonazis that took place on December 23, 2014. Accused of group hooliganism and aggravated bodily harm.  In September 2015, he was sentenced to 6 years of penal colony with reinforced regime.
