Alyaksandr Matveyeu, the son of a 68-year-old resident of Polatsk, who died of COVID-19 related pneumonia in Vitsebsk on April 2nd, was denied a criminal case launch, writes.

“The message, received from a citizen, has been reviewed. He was sent an answer to the specified address in France, where he lives”.

Matveyeu hasn’t received a letter from the police yet, but he has learned about the refusal from the policemen of Polatsk.
