Judge Tatsiana Falkouskaya passed the verdict today.

The former journalist of the Belarusian National State TV and Radio Company was accused of conspiracy or other actions aimed at takeover of power (part 1 of article 357 of the Criminal Code).

During her time behind bars, Lutskina's health deteriorated: her bronchial asthma condition worsened and a brain tumor started growing again. In 2014 Ksenia underwent surgery and had two brain tumors removed.
