Mogilev journalists Ihar Barysau and Ales Burakou wrote complaints on placing on the internet slanderous material about them. Complaints on this question were sent to the police and the prosecutor's office.

All publications are available on the website, there are also slanderous materials about civil and political activists of the Mogilev region. It is noteworthy that the site becomes more active on the eve of the election campaigns.

Barysau and Barakou are expecting the law enforcement to find those who made these materials and bring them to responsibility in accordance with law. In addition, independent journalists are asking to limit access to this site at the territory of Belarus.

- They write silly things. They don’t know what they are talking about. All the facts are non-natural and offensive. I’m sick and tired of reading this. Even more, from time to time some unknown person sends these materials to other social activists. I don’t deny that secretive agencies could be involved in it - said Ihar Barysau.
It should be noted that the place of registration of the owner of the site is the city if Odessa in Ukraine and it belongs to JSC "Technologies of the future." This is known by the results of the response of the social activists Karankewich Valery from Hotsimsk, who had previously made a complaint to the law enforcement authorities about the slanderous material that were posted on this site. Then the police managed to identify where the site was registered, but failed to find and bring to responsibility those who are engaged in it.
