He is best remembered for TV programs, where he spoke about the successes of the Belarusian Republican Youth Union.

As it became known to nn.by, the StringersHub agency has made the fake story for the Russian Channel One. On behalf of mass media organisations, this agency makes a search for operators to shoot a video in various hot spots.

The StringersHub founder is a former journalist of the Belteleradiocompany, Yakau Buta.

He is 28 years old, he comes from Svetlahorsk. Yakau Buta studied at the department of journalism of the Belarusian State University; he started working on TV in his first year.

He is best remembered for a piece on BT, when on June 29, 2011, he was on the air telling about the success of the BRYU concert on Kastrychnitskaya Square. That day, a silent protest event was supposed to be held there, they were taking place in the country all summer. “Thousands of people came to the concert,” – Yakau Buta was saying, without mentioning the protest.

In 2013, Yakau Buta founded the Like Media communications agency, which produced video content for TV channels, and later - a startup StringersHub. “From the first month of work, StringersHub has been in the black,” – Buta boasted.

Journalists contacted Yakau Buta to get a comment about the fake video from Krivoy Rog: “Sorry! I have little information on this topic, we will check into it in the near future.”
