“On World Press Freedom Day we stand in solidarity with independent media and journalists in Belarus, who have been going through unprecedented repressions. Press freedom is a fundamental value for society,” wrote the Permanent Representation of the Republic of Poland to the EU on Twitter.
At the end of April, the Court of Appeals in Minsk upheld the verdict in the case of Belsat journalists Katsyaryna Andreyeva and Darya Chultsova, both sentenced to two years in a penal colony for reporting on the dissolution of the protest in Minsk in November 2020.
