Belarus has granted asylum to a US citizen suspected of participating in the Capitol riots last year after he fled there.

Evan Neumann, 48, initially fled to Ukraine, before arriving in Belarus, where he applied for asylum, claiming he was facing “political persecution” in the United States.

A Belarus official said Newman – who hails from California – has been granted residency in the country “indefinitely”.

The state official said that Neumann was forced to cross the border into Belarus “illegally”, after drawing the attention of “secret security services” in Ukraine.
