Political prisoner Raman Pratasevich opens Twitter account

Political prisoner Raman Pratasevich has a new Twitter account. In one of his first tweets, the journalist stated that he was “returning to life online”, promising to respond to messages.

Raman Pratasevich is technically under house arrest. It is generally prohibited to use a phone or the Internet and go outside under this measure of freedom restraint. It is not clear who exactly is behind this strange PR action, but there are reasonable doubts about whether Pratasevich’s actions are voluntary, as he remains a hostage of the Belarusian authorities.
