NEXTA journalists now on terrorist wanted list

Stsyapan Putsila and Raman Pratasevich have been included in the list of persons involved in terrorist activities.

Stsyapan Putsila, the founder of NEXTA TG channel, and Raman Pratasevich, former deputy editor of the channel, have been included in the “List of organizations and individuals involved in terrorist activities.” As of today, they are the last in the list, with the numbers 725 and 726.

At the same time, they were included in the list not under a terrorist article, but for “mass unrest.”

“Yes, this is not a joke. The KGB of Belarus put me on the list of terrorists. Now my name is on the same list with ISIS guys,” Raman Pratasevich commented on Twitter.

He stressed that “not a single opponent of Lukashenka has ever received such a high recognition since the regime existed.”
