Tribuna.com is a Belarusian sports edition covering not only sports. So in August 2020 it was among the first to be blocked by the authorities. And a year later, in August 2021, the Ministry of Internal Affairs recognized the edition as extremist.
Meanwhile, Tribuna's employees were detained multiple times, searches were conducted at the number of them. In June 2021, 'unknown in civilian clothes' came to Aleksandr Ivulin, the edition's journalist, Krumkačy football player and a well-known sports blogger. Aleksandr is still detained at the pre-trial detention centre and was recognized as a political prisoner.
Managers of the project Maksim Berezinsky and Aleh Harunovich speak about how Tribuna.com is working now and about their plans for the future.
