The administration of Homel-based “Tourist” hotel has refused to provide premises for the screening of a documentary “Stalin’s Line. Homel Region” produced by local pro-democratic activists.

According to activist Kastus Zhukouski, the event was cancelled by order from local authorities, despite the fact a rent contract had already been signed.

The film was made by activists of the Nasha Alternatyva civil campaign. It features interviews with witnesses of the Stalinist repressions, who lost their relatives during the mass purges in the 1930s-1950s.
