  5. Belarus- Kolesnikova has been a key opposition figure in leading demonstrations after the disputed election win of President Alexander Lukashenko almost exactly a year ago, on August 9, 2020. Belarusian authorities tried to expel Kolesnikova in September 2020. The country's security agency drove her to the border with Ukraine in an attempt to forcibly remove her from the country. Kolesnikova tore up her passport and walked back into Belarus where she was taken into custody. A guilty verdict has been delivered in the case involving Belarusian activist Maria Kolesnikova. The activist was charged with attempting to seize power and with extremism by Belarusian authorities. Kolesnikova is a member of the opposition Coordination Council and was arrested in September. She now faces an 11-year prison term. The EU has condemned the "blatant disrespect" of rights following Kolesnikova's conviction and called for her immediate and unconditional release.
