By the way, the woman has long been in the field of view of the authorities, she has already been brought to administrative responsibility for hooliganism, plus she is abusing alcohol.
In general, for almost three years, this is the fourth such criminal case in the Grodno region. True, one of the cases was terminated due to the death of a 28-year-old accused.
