    Ban on print­ing

    Restric­tions on the dis­tri­b­u­tion of print­ed edi­tion

    The Belaru­sian Press House refused to print the new issue of the Kom­so­mol­skaya prav­da.


    The rea­son was the late deliv­ery of the issue. The August 20 issue was not print­ed because the edi­tors did not inform the print­ing house that it would be a dou­ble issue.


    Sub­se­quent­ly, the edi­to­r­i­al board received a let­ter from the print­ing house stat­ing that, due to COVID-19, the com­pa­ny had prob­lems obtain­ing parts and sup­plies for the machines. There­fore, they had to sus­pend print­ing, and the print­ing house had state news­pa­pers as a pri­or­i­ty.


    Oth­er Belaru­sian print­ing hous­es refused to print the news­pa­per.


    As a result, the August 18 and 20 issues of the news­pa­per were not print­ed in Belarus. The issues for August 21, 22 and 25 were print­ed in Rus­sia.


    Bel­posh­ta and Bel­sayuz­druk stopped dis­trib­ut­ing Kom­so­mol­skaya prav­da. The news­pa­per launched dis­tri­b­u­tion through the edi­to­r­i­al office, super­mar­kets, and chain stores.

    Web­site block­ing

    Access to the web­site of the Kom­so­mol­skaya prav­da news­pa­per kp.by was blocked in Belarus by the deci­sion of the Min­istry of Infor­ma­tion.


    The Min­istry of Infor­ma­tion of Belarus stat­ed that “the Inter­net resource kp.by made a pub­li­ca­tion that con­tained infor­ma­tion con­tribut­ing to the for­ma­tion of threats to nation­al secu­ri­ty, which con­sist­ed in arti­fi­cial aggra­va­tion of ten­sion and con­fronta­tion in soci­ety, as well as between soci­ety and the state.
