Dzmitry Yarmolenka has been already kicked out of the Kuliashou Mahiliou State University, and now they are trying to put pressure on him at work.

The harassment by the KGB was triggered by the blogger’s publications on the website “Free Format” (

This summer Dzmitry already had a conversation with a KGB employee, who tried to recruit him, but as soon as the young man refused to cooperate, they started to put pressure on him.

KGB agents talked to his boss, who in turn had a preventive conversation with him about the online publications. They allegedly spoil the image of the country and the authorities.

Today, on October 25, KGB requested Dzmitry Yarmolenka’s personal file.

Journalist Ales Burakou comments on the situation, “First, Dzmitry was expelled from his second year of university, where he studied to be a lawyer. Professor Rahartsou would not want to give him a positive mark. We think that he carried out the orders of those who expressed an interest in Dzmitry. Now he started to be pressured at his work. I do not rule out that the guy can lose it,” says the independent journalist.
