(CNN) A US Capitol riot suspect who fled the United States has been granted refugee status in Belarus, according to Belarusian state-owned television BelTA.

The California man, Evan Neumann, went to Europe after being charged in connection with the January 6, 2021, attack on the US Capitol.

Neumann initially settled in Ukraine, he said in an interview in November, but he claims he traveled to Belarus on foot after noticing that Ukrainian authorities were following him.

I am upset to find myself in a situation where I have problems in my own country.".

BelTA wrote on social media that Neumann had been forced to leave the US because of "politically motivated charges."

BelTA also posted images of Neumann with a government official, shaking hands and holding his new travel documents.

A federal grand jury in Washington indicted Neumann in December on 14 charges, including assaulting a police officer and engaging in physical violence on Capitol grounds. »

Pressed by a reporter on if he similarly disapproved of the decision to federally legalize interracial marriage, Braun said he did. »
