Stop pressure on independent media in Belarus

The Association RAZAM.CH is concerned and condemns the growing pressure on Belarusian non-state media, manifested in the persecution of individual journalists or even in the blocking of the country’s largest media resources, such as TUT.BY. We are convinced that the existence of independent journalism, as well as free access of citizens to various sources of information is an integral part of any healthy society and is a prerequisite for its development.
Unrestricted and unjustified state interference in the legitimate activities of media resources not only destroys pluralism of thought and transparency, but also destroys the natural feedback mechanisms in society and undermines trust in the state as a whole.
