2 Reporters Are Sentenced to Jail in Belarus for Filming Protests

February 19, 2021

Two journalists have been sentenced to serve two years in a Belarussian jail. Darya Chultsova, 23, and Katsiaryna Andreyeva, 27, were arrested in November 2020 for filming and live-streaming protests for their employer, Belsat TV. They were found guilty of “organizing a demonstration that grossly violates public order” by streaming the protests. The American Embassy in Belarus calls their conviction “an attempt to silence the media.”
