The NAM lawyer Artiom Proskalovich told on the air of Malanka Live about the renewed mass repression in Belarus
Repressions are renewed because the regime is trying to counteract the anti-war movement, which is in full force in Belarus. We see that the incident with the shooting of the guerrillas on the railway was not given any attention at the meeting of the Security Council, although the exposure of plots and detention of "extremists" is usually the No. 1 topic at such events. The regime is afraid to talk about it, they avoid airing these facts in the state media, because they are afraid to contribute to a new wave of struggles and protests.
It is Lukashenko who lays down the information emphasis in the propaganda agenda. If he does not raise such an issue, it means he does not want to draw attention to the fact that there is a partisan war in Belarus against the occupation and the regime that has usurped the power. The fact that this is being hushed up gives grounds to believe that the Belarusian people are doing everything right and pose a real threat to the regime. The Interior Ministry, KGB and GUBOPIC continue their punitive mission and the shocking footage of shot knees is their revenge for not having enough time to prevent all the actions on the railway.
To say that the release of political prisoners is on the regime’s agenda is not. The release of political prisoners has always been part of bargaining with the West, and as of today there is no dialogue and no prerequisite for this bargaining to take place. We should not expect an amnesty for political prisoners in the near future.
