Ryhor Yuzepchuk (45) was reportedly executed in April by authorities in Belarus; the second in 2014.

The exact date of Ryhor Yuzepchuk’s execution is not clear; the Mogilev regional court in western Belarus reportedly confirmed the execution after it became public knowledge on 8 May. In Belarus, executions are carried out by shooting; and its Criminal Executive Code provides for the government to not return the bodies of those executed to their families and not to inform them of where their body is buried.
