International pressure continues to mount against Belarus for forcing a commercial flight to land and seizing a journalist on board. Many reporters in Belarus have been prosecuted in recent months, including DW reporter Alexander Burakov. He’s just been released after serving a 20 day sentence, during which he says he was tortured.
Burakov is among the dozens of reporters who’ve faced prosecution by the Belarusian regime in recent months. Exiled journalists can only watch from across the border in fear.
