For ‘justifying tyranny’: Belarusian anarchists throw paint at Lukashenka-run TV (video)


On Thursday morning three masked men threw bulbs filled with paint at the building of the state-run Belarusian Television and Radio Company (BT) in Minsk.

The Belarusian anarchists have taken responsibility for the action and published the video of their protest against the ‘propagandists who help the regime to commit crimes’.

The video starts with BT propaganda outtakes. According to the authors, they are not going to tolerate ‘BT journalists’ lies and slander justifying tyranny’.

“The propagandists are guilty of all the crimes of the regime to which they provide help and support,” the protesters said.

If the committers are arrested, they may face up to six years in prison. The Television and Radio Company also promised to reveal their names on air. “The paint is quickly washed off the facade. But the flush of shame will not be too slow to leave parents and relatives when they see their creative children in the crime report on TV,” the press-service says.
