Today, approximately at 11 AM, we lost connection with CNI’s director Anton Radniankou and our team member Ivan Krautsou.
Anton’s and Ivan’s whereabouts are unknown. Their disappearance is most likely related to their work for the Coordination Council of the Belarusian opposition forces that was created in the aftermath of the Presidential Election.
