Opposition political scientist is 56 years old with health problems
On April 11, Belarusian political scientist Alyaksandr Feduta disappeared in Moscow. A statement to the police was written on the night of April 12. It was written by a certain Alexandra V. – a citizen of Russia. According to preliminary data, she is not a relative of Feduta, who permanently resides in Belarus. The wife of the Belarusian political scientist Marina Shibko told MK that she would come to Moscow on April 12 in search of her husband.
“Yes it’s true. My husband is missing. His phone has been switched off for more than a day, ”Shibko told the MK correspondent.
Friends of Feduta claim that he was going to Russia in early February, and appeared in Moscow at the end of March. According to the political scientist, he went to the capital of the Russian Federation to consult someone, but he did not say who exactly, an informed source reports.
Feduta actively supported the protests against Lukashenka. In this regard, one of the versions may be his abduction. The weak point in this theory is that he permanently lived in Belarus and was going to return there. At the same time, the police and the KGB were not interested in him. In general, Feduta, despite his opposition, was always very correct in his statements.
Another version is a stroke or other health problems. Friends of Feduta note that the political scientist has always had heart problems. But he has not yet been found in hospitals. The point may be that at the time of the accident the man did not have his passport with him. In this case, it will be difficult to find it.
Alexander Feduta was born in Grodno in 1956, now he is 56 years old. In 1994, he entered the campaign headquarters of Alexander Lukashenko and became his first press secretary. In 1995, Feduta quarreled with Lukashenko and went into opposition.
In 2010, he worked at the campaign headquarters of the opposition candidate Uladzimir Nyaklyaeu. During the protests following the 2010 presidential elections in Belarus, he was arrested and sent to prison for six months. During this time, the political scientist was recognized as a “prisoner of conscience.” In 2011, he was sentenced to 2 years of probation.
