The article on the informational portal Naviny.by was the basis for that letter.
In particular, the article says: "There's a half-meter of manure, сalves stand forelegs in the feeders, hind legs - in the manure, which is almost up to the windows. Food is not enough. Сalves are fed with rotten hay, so they choke, throttle, stronger calves trample those who are weaker ... " Photos of dead animals are attached to the article.
