Diplomats rush to Belarus Nobel laureate′s home after ′masked men′ spotted outside | News | DW | 09.09.2020

Diplomats of at least seven countries, including the Czech Republic, Sweden, Slovakia, Germany and Poland, visited the home of Nobel laureate Svetlana Alexievich in Belarus on Wednesday, after she said that masked men were loitering outside her block of flats and trying to intimidate her, for instance by repeatedly ringing the doorbell.

Alexievich also called journalists to her home, and accused the government of terrorizing the people.

“What is happening is terror against the people… We have to unite and not give up our intentions. There is a danger we will lose the country,” said Alexievich.
