In Belarus, the number of searches has multiplied, the office of Radio Svaboda in Minsk has been destroyed, and human rights defenders, journalists, activists and ordinary people are searched daily. After that, the officials began to eliminate dozens of NGO organizations. As at July 22, it is known that the Ministry of Justice has liquidated Human Constanta, the media platform Imena, Mova Nanova, Art Syadziba, Press Club Belarus and 45 other organizations.

At least 50 organizations were searched in July, 2021

We are aware that media and Telegram channels only get a part of information on what is happening. It is no exaggeration to say that the number of searches of people has increased to thousands — this information is diligently collected and documented by human rights activists.

But as for searches in private organizations, especially in the regions, there is much less information available.

Therefore, we consider it important to compile a chronology of repression (searches) of all non-governmental organizations in Belarus starting from August 9.

If you know where, when and in what organization the search took place — please fill in the form. It’s anonymous.
