A 54-year-old Minsk resident was arrested.

The Ministry of Internal Affairs reported on the first detention for ‘genocide denial’. A 54-year-old Minsk resident was arrested by GUBOPiK (punitive Belarusian state body – the Main Directorate for Combating Organized Crime and Corruption) with the help of SOBR SpecOps.

"It was established: in 2020, a man created and managed a social media community, where he posted destructive materials on protest topics aimed at changing the constitutional order. At the same time, in his publications, the defendant denied the genocide of the Belarusian people by the German invaders during the Great Patriotic War, rehabilitating the fascists and attributing to Soviet citizens the crimes committed by the occupiers," the statement reads.

The department believes that in this way he "tried to blacken the memory of the victims of Nazism and the heroes who fought the enemy."

Criminal cases have been initiated for "denial of the genocide of the Belarusian people", "organization and preparation of actions that grossly violate public order, or active participation in such actions", "insulting Lukashenka" and "rehabilitation of Nazism".
