The press release informed that those individuals published extremist materials on the Internet, urged to carry out radical actions, shared personal data of government officials, journalists, law enforcement officers, as well as insulted and threatened those people.
Among other accusations, the message of the Belarusian Presidency noted that those involved discredited the honor and dignity of a serviceman, showed disrespect for State symbols and refused to perform their official duties.
