Deutsche Welle has published a new video of Alena Zakharanka's meeting with Yury Harauski.
This Deutsche Welle investigation has become a real bombshell in Belarus. Although the events took place 20 years ago. In 1999, three well-known critics of Aliaksandr Lukashenka disappeared in Minsk.
Many people in Belarus suspected that government-supervised structures were involved in their disappearance. Although he was democratically elected, Lukashenka strengthened his personal power and became an irreplaceable ruler. The protests were brutally suppressed. For many years Lukashenka has been called the last dictator in Europe. Among those who were not afraid to criticize the ruler was former Interior Minister Yury Zakharanka. As a result of the DW investigation, it became known to everyone that soldiers of the Belarusian SOBR, the so-called "death squadron" could have been involved in his disappearance.
Yury Harauski is a key witness. Alena, Yury Zakharanka's daughter, decided to meet with him and look into Harauski's eyes. According to Alena, she wanted to know if he was telling the truth. Her meeting with an accomplice to the abduction and murder of her father took place in front of DW cameras in Switzerland, where Harauski had asked for asylum.
