In Gomel, several employees of the city radio station 107.4FM were fired after one of them congratulated Russian journalist and blogger Yury Dud on his birthday. Write about this "Zerkalo" and "Mediazona. Belarus" .
We are talking about radio hosts Marina Turovets, Yaroslav Bychkovsky and Artem Zabiran. As a friend of the latter said, he was fired "with a trailer, just in case."
On October 11, a post was published in the pro-government Telegram channel ZhS Premium, where one of the subscribers allegedly complained about the air of 107.4FM. It was alleged that on the air “they describe the merits of a certain Yu. ". “Oh, and yes, they also congratulated him on the DR. What does it mean????" - the post says.
A friend of one of the dismissed claims that this broadcast was the cause. “For mentioning Yuri Dudya. There was a heading "Who was born today". They name iconic personalities and a brief note about them. When you were born, what did you do? Well, from this it was inflated, ”he told the Mediazone. Belarus".
The ZhS Premium channel also posted screenshots from the social networks of radio hosts Artem Zabiran and Yaroslav Bychkovsky, where one of them shared the song of the Kasta group “Come out for a walk” and a photo with a white-red-white flag. They were called collaborators and "bchb-scum".
The founder of the radio station is the executive committee of Gomel. The publication "Zerkalo" writes that after this incident, checks began in the editorial offices of other Gomel state media.
In April, the Ministry of Justice recognized Yury Dud as a "foreign agent." Formally, this was done because he did not label “foreign agents” in his YouTube releases, including The Insider and Meduza, and also for receiving money for advertising on YouTube.
