On 2 March in New-York the international organization Committee to Protect Journalists condemned the beating of a number of Belarusian journalists and the candidate to the presidential position Aliaksandr Kazulin.

‘This is nothing but state thuggery,’ said CPJ Executive Director Ann Cooper. ‘We condemn in the strongest terms these flagrant attempts to stifle media coverage of opposition candidates during the presidential campaign.’
