Let us remind you that the legal consultation of the Stolbtsy district was noted in our material as the largest legal consultation in which there are no attorneys. If you look at very recent history, then as of April 6, 2022, there were 4 attorneys listed in the legal consultation office. At that time, one of the attorneys (A. Belokhvost) was already under
disciplinary proceedings for signing a petition condemning military actions in Ukraine. As of October 20, 2022, there were three attorneys in the legal consultation office of the Stolbtsy district: S. Kosmach, G. Mamonko, V. Yagodinsky. And already on December 2, the Qualification Commission for Advocacy in the Republic of Belarus (remember that the existence and powers of this commission contradict
the generally accepted principles of the legal profession) decides that S. Kosmach, G. Mamonko, V. Yagodinsky cannot practice law due to insufficient qualifications. And on December 28, 2022, this decision is finally confirmed by the termination of the licenses of these attorneys. This is how, with one decision, one day, an specific legal consultation has been actually liquidated. Accordingly, since December 28, there was not a single attorney in the legal consultation office of the Stolbtsy district (it started with 4). We focus on the fact that there were once 4 attorneys, since the rest of the consultations that are now left without attorneys are classified as understaffed consultations. Stolbtsy legal consultation is an exception among consultations without attorneys.
