First they blew the whole country’s mind with fakes, then they proceeded to destroy the undesirables, spreading terrorist mould

Last week, the documentary Plesen [Mould] was aired on STV and Belarus 1 TV channels. Its author is Grigory Azaryonok, journalist. Together with Main Directorate for Combating Organised Crime and Corruption (GUBOPiK) of the Internal Ministry, he developed a real anthology of the emergence in Belarus of a radical terrorist underground movement. The film tells about the role played in the destabilisation of the socio-political situation in the country by the Chornaya Kniga Belarusi [Black Book of Belarus] channel, the BYPOL organisation, the Peramoga [Victory] plan, terrorists from the Supratsiu [Resistance] organisation, and other supporters of changes that are far from being peaceful.

Terrorist’s notebook

Officers of GUBOPiK knew how events would unfold well before August 2020. So, undercover specialists were present in all initiatives coordinated from abroad. For example, from the very first day of existence of the Black Book of Belarus Telegram channel, there was a GUBOPiK representative among the administrators of the resource. The resource published personal data of law enforcers, judges, journalists, ideologists, and ordinary citizens.

Activists of the Black Book of Belarus made so-called shooting lists for the failed military conspiracy. They are also responsible for the sanctions lists.
The GUBOPiK representative who was among the administrators of the Telegram channel saw how these things work in the association. According to him, the people who created the Black Book of Belarus are financed from Western funds. The Czech fund was particularly active. The activities of the groups were supervised directly by Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya’s office. The editorial board was selected personally by Franak Viačorka. According to the GUBOPiK officer, most often, personal data was sent to the administrators by citizens who wanted to get even or settle scores with someone,
“There were envious people; there were those guided solely by selfish motives. They were far from politics; they were only interested in monetary rewards.”
Looking ahead, Grigory Azaryonok’s film gives a vivid and illustrative example of how followers of the so-called punitive de-anonymisation of power officers act. A 24-year-old Minsk resident was detained while trying to attack a GUBOPiK officer whose personal data was posted on the Black Book of Belarus. The detainee had a large dagger with him. 
During interrogation, he admitted that he had been promised a generous financial reward for the attack and that he had learned the address of the officer from the Telegram channel.

Tea with a taste of terror

After the people left the streets, the supervisors needed new ‘meat’. They decided to find it in city yards. The so-called yard initiatives emerged that took place under the guise of ‘just tea parties’. In fact, as another GUBOPiK representative explains, among other things, terrorist attacks and murders were discussed at such meetings. In the film, these words are confirmed by one of the detained participants of a yard initiative of the kind.
“We came to a certain place. About 40 people met there. During our discussions, there was an agreement —holding rallies. None knew the group’s administrator; it seems to me that this person is not in the country at all.”
From words, the participants of the yard initiatives moved to action. In November 2020, one of the administrators of the Kaskad LIVE (Cascade LIVE) yard resource under the nickname Samurai set tyres on fire in front of the building of the Department of Internal Affairs of the Minsk Regional Executive Committee.

Vyacheslav Orlovsky, department head of Internal Ministry’s GUBOPiK:
In case the Victory plan participants attack polling stations, infrastructure facilities, public officials or law enforcement officers, their actions will be classified as terrorist acts. We will corner and detain all these terrorist rats. And we will destroy those who try to offer even the slightest armed resistance.

Ex with ambition

The film tells in detail about the activities of the BYPOL organisation, the backbone of which includes former law enforcement officers. Being in close contact with Polish secret services, the participants of this organisation became ideological inspirers for Belarusian terrorists: they sent them instructions, recommendations, links on how and what to do before and after the crime.
 For example, one of those inspired by BYPOL made two explosive devices with his own hands.
He put one device in a litter bin not far from a kindergarten and playground. As for the second one, he planned to throw it at the checkpoint of the 72nd Guards Joint Training Centre for training warrant officers and junior specialists in Pechi. He was detained in the act, as police officers knew about his plans from the very beginning.
Mikhail Lupanosov, brother of one of the BYPOL members, said that when he communicated with his sibling, the latter told him only what his employers, who were wiretapping their conversation, wanted to hear. It is not surprising, given that, according to GUBOPiK, BYPOL has already received about       $1,500,000 from its customers.
Mikhail Bedunkevich, deputy head of Internal Ministry’s GUBOPiK, called on all runaway traitors who participated in the initiative for saving their lives to return home, redeem themselves and continue living in Belarus. 
After all, the fate of a traitor has always been the same: as soon as traitors become useless to their supervisor, the supervisor destroys them.

Fake ‘victory’

Another trap invented by foreign centres for losers who consider themselves revolutionaries is the Victory plan. A GUBOPiK representative said that this project involved recruiting people to carry out terrorist activities. To become a member of the plan, one needs to fill in a questionnaire. But once you join it, it is impossible to leave. The organisers use blackmail and provocations. According to the Internal Ministry, the Victory plan participants’ data array was made public. Currently, all information is in the law enforcers’ hands.
The film tells about the activities of another terrorist organisation — Resistance. Sergei Vanagel, GUBOPiK department head, stated the goal of its members — the destruction of people’s property.
“They cut tyres on car wheels, broke windows, set houses with people on fire. Their main task was to instil fear. These 5-6 people were detained; they are at the remand centre and give testimony.”
It is noteworthy that terrorist organisations competed with each other. Another component of the radical mould is cyberpartisans. The film tells about the attempts of this group to disrupt the system of work of the Belarusian Nuclear Power Plant and Mogilevtransmash. But thanks to the employees’ coordinated work, these and other attacks did not cause any damage.

Andrei Parshin, head of Internal Ministry’s GUBOPiK:
We clearly see that the so-called protest movement is by no means spontaneous. Thanks to continuous operational work for almost two years, we have identified a multilevel and professional scheme of management and coordination of the coup.
Provocative activities are managed from several centres. The first centre is Lithuanian, the most active one. It is responsible for numerous international contacts. Also, the work of extremist and terrorist black books and punitive lists is supervised by it. The direct guidance is carried out by special services of Lithuania and the United States. The second branch is the Polish centre. It is in charge of radical actions. This branch includes such structures as BYPOL, Nexta and Khartiya [Charter]. The corruption of this branch should be singled out for mention. For its members, it is a mere project.
We also note that the supervisors and special services are extremely disappointed in all the participants and are looking for ways to replace them with less corrupt ones.
