Maxim Yahnieshka is an antifascist from Grodno. On September 7, 2016, he was sentenced to 3 years of custodial restraint for a fight with right-wing hooligans (art. 186 Threat of homicide, malicious bodily harm or property destruction) and for robbing another hooligan of his hat (art. 206.2 Robbery with threat of violence + art. 339.1 Hooliganism).

It all started on April 1, 2015, when Maxim got beaten up by a right-wing gang so hard that he had to call the ambulance. Doctors saw multiple bodily injuries and called cops. Cops wanted to start a case on the account, trying to make Maxim make a statement against the perpetrators, but when he refused, they found the hooligans using surveillance cameras and made then accuse Maxim of other conflicts that happened before. Maxim changed his status from a victim to the accused.

On November 17, 2016 the higher court ruled to leave the sentence unchanged.

On December 12, 2016 he was transfered to an open-type penitentiary institution.
