In Belarus, more than 200 authors of offensive comments about the deceased employee of the State Security Committee (KGB) were identified per day. This was announced by the Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs (MVD) of the republic, Gennady Kazakevich, on the air of ONT.
According to him, a special bot was launched to track authorship, with the help of which Belarusians could transfer relevant information to law enforcement officers.
“People asked and demanded to protect them from such virtual fighters and gave us information on which we found these scoundrels,” Kazakevich stressed. He noted that more than 2 thousand people have applied to the Ministry of Internal Affairs with complaints about insults of a representative of the authorities.
On September 28, it became known about the fatal wound of a KGB officer Fedosyuk, who participated in a special operation “to work out addresses where persons involved in terrorist activities could be located.”
While trying to enter one of the apartments, the security officer was fired upon by 31-year-old Andrei Zeltser, who was there with his wife, who was filming what was happening on camera. The man was liquidated by the return fire of law enforcement officers. His wife was detained.
The Belarusian authorities have promised not to leave unpunished people denigrating the memory of the deceased security officer, and threatened them with arrest. Subsequently, the human rights center “Viasna” reported that more than 50 people were taken to the pre-trial detention center in Akrestsin Street in connection with publications on the Internet on this incident.
