The Belarusian authorities declared the Belarusian-language media Nasha Niva and its social networks “extremist” on the day of the 115th anniversary of the publication. About it it says in the Telegram-channel “Nasha Niva”.
The report stresses that the publication has not yet been included in the republican list of extremist materials, which is maintained by the Belarusian Ministry of Information.
In August this year, the Belarusian court admitted the media resource Tut.by, which was previously blocked and stripped of its media status, and its pages on social networks and messengers are extremist.
At the end of June Tut.by deleted social media posts for 2020 and the first six months of 2021. “We removed posts because of the ‘extremism’ case on our social networks and website. We did this for the safety of our readers and employees, ”the editorial office said.
At the beginning of July 2021, the former members of the Tut.by team who remained at large launched new media Zerkalo.io. Its edition is located outside Belarus. An hour after the launch of Zerkalo.io, access to the resource was blocked in the country.
Earlier in Belarus the TV channel “Belsat” and the sports website Tribuna.com were recognized as extremist. Dozens of other independent media outlets in the country are blocked. In the editors of a number of publications searched, editor-in-chief and some employees of Nasha Niva detained.
