Recently, Belarusian authorities labelled this site's content as extremist.

Presently, MTS internet provider does not provide access to the site.

"However, other providers are expected to follow suit soon. The Belarusian bureaucracy is known for being slow, yet goal-oriented," stated the site's editorial board.

This award is the second time the Belarusian state has recognised the media's quality within one week.

The editors stated, "We now know for certain that we are doing the right thing, and we will keep reporting the truth about what is happening in the country."

Plan B is a media outlet that covers politics, economy, and the life of Belarusians on both sides of the border. Volha Loika, who was previously the editor-in-chief of the TUT.BY political and economic section, is now the editor-in-chief of this media outlet.
