In Belarus, access to the network has almost completely disappeared: the main social networks, search engines, instant messengers and even some state sites do not work. The main source of information on the network remains the Telegram messenger, whose founder Pavel Durov said that he was introducing measures developed specifically for this country.

The restrictions began on the day of the presidential elections, August 9, and continue for the third day. According to the official version, the reason for this is cyberattacks from abroad. This point of view was voiced by the state leader Alexander Lukashenko.

The nongovernmental organization NetBlocks, on the other hand, believes that the government should restrict the restrictions. The video, published by experts, shows how bright spots of the Internet disappear from the map of Belarus, as if on command.
