Despite represions Belsat Television continuous its broadcasts and produces new films documenting the lawlessness in Belarus!
FAMA Club, 5 Legionowa St.
Since the rigged presidential elections in the Republic of Belarus in August 2020, which gave rise to the Belarusian revolution of dignity, the reporters from Belsat Television have made 25 reports and documentaries presenting these events. They showed the euphoria of crowds of several hundred thousand people in the streets of Belarusian cities demanding the resignation of the last dictator of Europe, the determination of people fighting for respecting the law, and the extraordinary engagement of Belarusian women who were the true heroines of these events. Autumn and winter brought less optimistic themes: mass arrests of demonstrants, forced emigration, murders of at least six participants of peaceful demonstrations, the regime’s revenge on the most active participants of the Belarusian revolution.
Belsat reporters were also affected. Young journalists Kaciaryna Andrejawa and Daria Czulcowa were sentenced to two years in a penal colony for carrying out live coverage of the demonstration in Minsk. Many journalists had to flee Belarus in fear for their safety. Despite these represions Belsat Television continuous its broadcasts and produces new films documenting the lawlessness in the center of Europe. The films were broadcast on Belsat Television, retransmitted by other European channels, they are available on the website www.belsat.eu and on YouTube in several language versions. Viewers of our festival will see three of them.
