The prime-minister of Belarus Siarhei Sidorski signed the ruling according to which the informational production which is confessed to be extremist by the court must be included into the republican list of extremist materials which would be lead by the Ministry of Information and published in the state newspapers Respublika, Narodnaya Gazeta and Zviazda within 3-day period after its submission to them by the ministry. The list will include the kind of the informational material, the name of the court, the day of enforcement of the verdict, the names of the authors or producers of the information production.
