  • Kyky.org media suspended due to funding problems

    The online magazine KYKY, which has served as a guide to the city of Minsk since 2010, has suspended its website due to financial problems. This information was confirmed to Belsat TV by the former editor of KYKY, Viktar Malisheuski.

    Vik­tar Mal­isheus­ki explained that some jour­nal­ists will remain in the project and the Insta­gram and Tik­Tok pages will be updat­ed as usu­al. How­ev­er, the web­site is cur­rent­ly down.

    KYKY co-own­er Sasha Ramana­va said that the team was reor­ga­niz­ing and plan­ning to work in a new for­mat.

    Like most inde­pen­dent media, KYKY’s edi­to­r­i­al staff was forced to leave Belarus after the 2020 elec­tions.

    KYKY’s co-founder, busi­ness­man Ali­ak­san­dr Vasilievich, was sen­tenced to three years in prison for tax eva­sion. After the tri­al, he was rec­og­nized as a polit­i­cal pris­on­er and left Belarus.

    In recent months, sev­er­al Belaru­sian media out­lets have appealed to their read­ers for finan­cial sup­port.
