Minsk court found Tikhanovskaya’s Telegram channel extremist

The court of the Central District of Minsk recognized the Telegram channel of the ex-presidential candidate Svetlana Tikhanovskaya as extremist, RIA Novosti reports.

The court made a decision based on the materials of the Main Directorate for Combating Organized Crime and Corruption.

The agency indicated that subscribing to Telegram channels, which were recognized as extremist, is fraught with criminal liability.

We will remind, after the defeat in the presidential elections in the republic, Tikhanovskaya left the country in August last year. She is now in Lithuania. The Belarusian authorities put her on the interstate wanted list for calls for the violent overthrow of the constitutional order.

We add that a case was initiated against Tikhanovskaya about the preparation of an act of terrorism by an organized group.
