Newspaper shut down
br23 reports closing down of the newspaper Nasha Niva, a Belarusian-language publication that was about to celebrate its 100th anniversary this year. The destruction of the Belarusian culture, that the Lukashenka's regime is famous for, continues. The official reason for closing down is the editor's arrest. And the reason for the arrest was that he spoke Belarusian: he was charged with using "foul language".
