Part of the team of the independent information portal TUT.BY, shut down by the authorities, announced the launch of a new website Zerkalo.io. The new project would have a narrower focus, concentrating on covering social, political, and economic news in Belarus. Sports, culture, and events would receive less coverage.

Zerkalo.io website has already been blocked in Belarus by the decision of the Ministry of Information, yet it remains available to users inside the country through a VPN. The team emphasizes that the new website would end its existence on the day when TUT.BY would be able to resume its work in Belarus legally and in full, with access to the entire archive of publications.
