Chronicle from Belarus

There are very few foreign journalists in Belarus; the Lukashenko government has repeatedly refused to grant visas to journalists and closed the borders. In this context, the IWM decided to create this blog, “Chronicle from Belarus.” The Chronicle is an archive of curated material from a wide variety of sources, including first-person testimonies.

Where possible, we have commissioned translations from Russian, Belarusian, Ukrainian and Polish into German and/or English and posted the original together with the translation. 

Texts are posted in their original language, with their titles translated into English and a link to a translation of the whole text when available.
