Russian state media said ver- move was in retaliation for the refusal of the uk to grant visas to russian journalists. Bus raynsford antar.

Yeah he's got he's got right up really talking about this group. It's interesting stuff. Yes this is a really good return to the because we talked wasn't two or three weeks ago on the show win by. I started dropping some of the things that this group the partisans had hacked out the various interstate security apparatus in belarus. And this kind of goes back and looks at. That story has a bunch more details about kind of the makeup of the group They should be saying something. Like fifteen ish people bounce from the work in the tech industry and belarus in general and a few that have some sub security experience about what kind of learning to hack on the fly supported by a whole bunch of ex patriots involuntary ex patriot belarussian police and other state security people that fled the country after you know some of the bad things down in las relations and they end up providing support and gardens and analytics To help them go through. The process of making the most of the networks have a gangster. I think this kind of spitballing at times like it. Is this exactly what it sounds like. Is it really activists and local did initially talk about this. We came down on the side of well. This actually looks like it might be genuine kind of weird and it starts is to see some stories that back out that feel that we have at the time because we were going on. I'm pretty thin input at that at that point in the story but this is just an i was reading. This and i'm struck by this is like really walked inside a threat. Looks like you know we. We've seen so much has been made in writing about computer security over the you know the the dangers of insiders. This is really the in game of of insider when your own national government is using the people who work the mechanics of your national governments have security apparatus tuning against you and then using those tolls against the government and that's just a.

"If there was a kind of widespread apathy bellarusse before people kind of woke up with those protests the mass protests and if the post weren't enough than the brutal crackdown. that's followed. I think has not only scared people but it has i think broken some kind of final bonds that there might have been between them and the man who calls himself the president of this country. We are going to be talking say to maria sister but just to say as well with what happened with the olympics in the last couple of weeks and of course with the olympic with the olympic athletes and the comments about belarus. And what's going on there. How much do you think that will have also added pressure internationally. Even if that support from russia. Is that well. I think you know the the. Us has said that there will be further sanctions. Certainly opposition figures an extra. Likes atlantic hanukkah. I've been calling for more sanctions. I'm to speak to some people here. They say yes. We want more sanctions. We know it will hurt economically but they believe is the only way to put the squeeze on the authorities here but you know there are people who would prefer things to sort of take along as they are. They worried about the unrest that can be caused by process. They look to ukraine for example where of course. Opposition protests led to russia's intervention. a war. That still goes on many years later so people are also nervous about what might happen here and where things could lead so it is a very difficult situation but yes the economic sanctions do hurt and the focus. I think of the world is is critical to the situation in belarus. And that's interesting in fact that we've actually been invited here today because belarus's being closed off to foreign journalists a long time ever since those protests have been really really restricting. Who can come in here and you can report from here so i think the very fat we're here means alexander under kushinka does care to some degree about what the world here's from him..

"How much of the conversation. Also centers around russia Indeed the goal is to aggregate the international support for belarussian cho's because belarus can be success story in when how joe joe by the mentioned he said that there isn't going fight between autocracy and democracy in the world then says the yes and belarussians on is on the front line of this fight. This is why you should help us. And the russia's role is quite controversial here because russia was not prepared for this revolution in belarus and they didn't prepare any russian candidate and the only person they know how to deal with is lukashenka and they're closing iceland lukachenka's crimes question cassette. Trust is because they don't have anyone better and unfortunately malonga russia supports lukashenka. Less and less supportive hasn't baylor's it does seem as though an and perhaps this is what happens in in in in countries like yours that we sort of go up and down with with protests and push back from from citizens given all. That's happened over the past twelve months. What do you think might happen next. How will lukashenko respond if there's another uprising. By by the people of belarus there will be a next way of protest of the revolution definitely because there are many processes that happening behind the scene. We see that they nimick. Within the elites more and more people wear loyal to lukashenko before they're unhappy because right now they lost their possibility to gain money to participate in the political processes. They don't like status squall. So i think there will be a prize in. We are preparing nationwide strike. We are working with workers and we had china create multiple points of pressure this crackdown. We have seen less two weeks. It's not the sign of power when you're in control of the situation that you don't need to arrest the journalist kidnap athletes it's a sign of fragility and in an insecurity of the regime. Well particularly in the case of of the belarussian sprinter surely lukashenko in his regime knew what would happen on olympic stage that the world would be watching. This would become an example. Did they just expect her to to take it. And why would they have played that hand eye with such a big spotlight I think you overestimate their ability to count to predict the reaction in o. Rien there hijacking. That was not the result of the well-thought plan. It was very erasure channel. Spontaneous decision of lukashenka..

"The world where co production of gbh. Boston and the strongman of eastern europe are meeting today. Russian president vladimir putin and belorussia leader alexander. Lukashenka should have a lot to discuss at their meeting in sochi russia. On top of the list lukashenka's decision to order a fighter jet to intercept a passenger plane and force it to land in the belarus capital minsk. He did that to arrest a twenty six year. Old dissident ramon pro to save putin has defended the action but the tactic has brought harsh international condemnation and headaches for the two leaders are schreibman is a political analyst and a non resident scholar at the moscow carnegie center joins us from minsk rpm before we get to the putin kushinka meeting. How do you explain the ryan. Air incident from earlier. This week i mean. What do you think was lukashenka's motivation. Bellarusse leafs under very heavy handed. Crackdown in the recent nine. Ten months after the presidential election which was widely regarded as raked and forbi- larousse. Since there is nothing you in this behavior for his government today. The primary objective is to neutralise all the political threats as you know belarus was rocked by the end to look products last summer last autumn and he still leaves in this atmosphere of a besieged fortress and so focus on productivity was one of the most wanted as he put it terrorist most wanted political activists and the international repercussions and the reputational consequences. Were just secondary in that moment. Okay let's move to today. What do we know so far about the meeting between alexander lukashenka and vladimir putin while they started in the usual manner joke in bulk in the west putin dropped this basically accusation that the west that you do the same. And why would you criticise belarus. In this case honestly. I don't expect any consequential decisions coming out from this because look can push has been meeting for many times in the recent years in the recent months and every time there were huge. Expectations like samson sensational would be signed or announced. And nothing like this happened. How would you describe lukashenka's relationship with putin and russia. At the moment it's difficult leser. Putin hoped that the two countries could be united basically and he pushed lukashenka. Tour's this project of reunification of two countries Refused so. I'm not sure that putin is heavy about lukashenko's political crisis at home that russia has to pay for basically russia. Pass to pay for all the expenses politically diplomatically. But also economically you mentioned the mass protests last summer against lukashenko and belarus and that followed what most people saw as a rigged presidential election given. What's going on and the ryanair incident. What is the current state of the belorussian opposition movement. On the one hand there haven't been any growth of lukashenko popularity at the same time. The opposition was basically crushed by the repression of the lost year. This year and most of its leaders are either jailed or exiled so this is a difficult challenge for the opposition and exiles. They basically are now waiting for another window of opportunity to open art jim. This is not an abstraction for you your chin scratching in washington. Dc or new york. You're in minsk in belarus and you're seeing all this right up close. What effect is having a new in your life while it's not the most pleasant months i heaven here on that right now. Many of my friends are in jail and write them letters. Ice read reports about new of people. I know mike winston my former colleagues being arrested right now as we speak nobody sixth but the idea of leaving the country and just observing everything that happens here from across the border is not that easier because you will still be worried for the people at home for your relatives your friends but at the same time you have will have your homeland basically stolen from you.

"To one Maitha. Matt. How are right harden new out a So, he's saying I'm not going to give out his name. He's saying everybody who says we're insulting the palace is wrong. There's no proof. In their view, they say, well, we're talking about laws that surround the monarchy that surround the palace, the laws that say you can't analyze or criticize its role in society. We're not trying to insult the royal family. So their vision is to have a legal system that would be something closer to the United Kingdom. Where people very openly talk about the queen and gossip about Prince Harry and what he's wearing and all that Again that is just very hard to fathom in Thailand and going anywhere near that red line is very risky. So what's next for this movement and these protests? Well I. Think if these protesters stick to mostly challenging the military Thailand has seen that before a for decades, there's been this cycle of push back its military power It seldom works out great for the protesters, but it's not unprecedented Their primary goal is to have parliament dissolved and the government redesigned so that the military isn't pulling so many strings if. This faction within the movement continue talking about the palace. They are very likely in trouble. In fact, there already in Trouble Marco, some of the young men and women who've gone that route have been charged with sedition. Some have been picked up some are out on bail summer in custody, and so this is this is what happens when you when you cross that line. The world's Patrick win and Bangkok. Thank you. Thanks Marco. Protests now, half a world away Belorussian Russian President Alexander Lukashenka has ratcheted up efforts to reassert control and crush street protests in his country protests say look rigged the vote in an election there ten days ago authorities of clamp down with rubber bullets, tear gas and stun grenades thousands of protesters have been detained, and what they describe is troubling that's what we're going to hear and a quick warning. Some of the details are violent and disturbing. Please take care while listening Valentine Stefanovic is with a visa, a Belorussian human rights organization in Minsk. We have serious crisis with the human rights situation in our country, and before the protests behalf twenty, six political prisoners including the husband of the candidates Atlanta's Janowski said gates. WHO's also still in prison and the online of August after the results of election solids of people in all the country came do the protests and it was a peaceful protest but they was attacked by the police who used the weapons and a lot of people still in hospital. Now, more than six thousand people was detained at this is official information, but we think it will be more. Now we collect a lot of information about the torture. Massive and systematical. So. If those numbers of people detained are accurate, it's really stunning. How are those detainees treated in prison? Do you have reports? Yes for now, we call this information and we will prepare their port. It's difficult to say now, how many people was tortured? We have more than five hundred stories of them from different parts of the. And at was a really brutal than the people was beaten everywhere it was bitten in polling stations in after detention centers have you been able to confirm those reports? We asked people to came into, say their stories and we made videotape of the people and Also we have who had a special who forms Google forms when people can just send out information as a photo also William Methods people in hospitals and talk with them. How many cases are you? Processing. Valentine. The. Hunger of them, I think we have a lot of information's not direct information because not all people ready to talk about that. But we have at least one stories when we can say that the man was raped. And the also today, the instigation of said that they check information about the rapes of the woman who was in detention center and they said, we haven't Appalachians from them, but it's of course who can appeal to the police that the police raid them. So it's quite strange logic i. asked you about treatment of detainees in prison. He started talking immediately about torture how widespread is it in? Belarus. I think there was a massive and it was magical. It was in all of the country. It's not was it was not only means get was other CDs and have some weaknesses from their police officers. Ho just left the police after that for example, in leader in Grodno region there Colino of the police who left the police after that he said openly bald, his witnesses, what he? saw how it wasn't a city and the when they police brutally beaten people in polling stations the of course, not all policemen support that for example, in this Salida city saltine policemen's just left the police after that I was going to ask you is the treatment you're describing is being ordered from on high by President Lukashenko's associates or do you think these are individual police who are especially hard? And No, I think. Some individuals decisions or some excesses of some policemen's? No it's looks like it was a systematical. It was a lot of pro-poor Otis special troops will do that and I think it was like punishment of the people who participate on anti-government demonstrations because they beat them people they set you not petrels y you're against our state you'll pay our side for all the means man they'd beaten them. At was a completely political motivations and it was like a punishment. I've speaking with Valentine's Day found in Minsk who represents Belorussian Human Rights Organization visa. There are also reports that prisons in Belarus are at capacity in that make shift camps are being used to detain people what do you know about that? Yes, it was not enough. Space is still. Befall and the for example, in one room in the later center in means was like fourteen fifty people only for five for example, the prisoners in that. The people just slept on the floor or they can't sleep at all and also Bali's. Send.

They're not really a matter of my own opinion. They're a matter all how things were like a historical kind of. Perspective on things Yeah. Well and on the other hand. I think that when it comes to my opinion, it would be interesting for people to hear them because not a lot of people talk about Bill Bill Belarus outside of billers. So everybody has been completely in the dog as to what our political situation has been the you has made some sanctions.

Even a lot of the outsiders that I've talked about one the will win the ask you although ruse they ask you a whole does it feel to live in a dictatorship? So people are aware over to point, but they're also don't know just how bad things can get realistically.
