Byelorussian students demanded of the U.S. government on Friday the release of the five Cuban antiterrorists unfairly incarcerated in the northern nation for almost 15 years now for fighting against criminal actions against their country.
Artur Procopchik, representing the university students of the Faculty of International Relations of the State University of Belarus, read a statement, which expresses the interest of students in spreading in that country the truth about The Five, as they’re known internationally, the Prensa Latina news agency reported.
The young students will travel to the Caribbean island to study for a month at Havana’s "Raul Roa Garcia" Institute of International Relations, and took an interest in knowing more about the case of these five Cubans, condemned to harsh sentences in the United States.
The president of the Committee for the Release of the Five Heroes in Belarus, Guenady Ladisev, looked back at the biased trial these Cuban fighters were subjected to and insisted on the importance of world solidarity.
Representatives of the committee for The Five agreed to increase solidarity actions several times over in Belarus and to encourage the distribution of messages on the Cuban antiterrorists in several languages, to spread the truth about their case in different parts of the world.
