He is an investigative journalist, editor of the Belarusian portal «Ezhednevnik»‎ (ej.by ).

Was detained on December 8, 2021. Earlier, Sergei had already been detained in the period from March 25 to April 4, 2020.

Some human rights organizations regarded the repression as evidence of a political motive in the persecution of a journalist aimed at forcing him to stop or change the nature of his activities to disseminate information about corruption.

The reason for the prosecution of the journalist, according to Satsuk's colleagues, were high-profile investigations, primarily concerning large-scale corruption in the medical field. Based on the facts obtained, he told about unprecedented «kickbacks»‎ for the supply of expensive equipment; about the purchase of an unregistered vaccine, which was actually tested on Belarusian children; about falsification of data on the spread of COVID-19 in Belarus. And all this with the approval of the control department — the Ministry of Health.

Trial outcome:

8 years of imprisonment in a penal colony of general regime.

After the sentence comes into effect, it is only possible to write letters to a prisoner. According to article 85 of the Penal Enforcement Code, prisoners cannot receive money transfers from persons who are not family members. Parcels are also only possible from relatives. If you want to help, help families directly, if this option is available on the prisoner's card.
