Telegram Chat "Belarusian Attorneys" Is Recognized as Extremist, then as Extremist Formation

On August 25th, the Partizansky district court of Minsk rendered a decision deeming the Telegram chat "Belarusian Attorneys" extremist. There were about 200 participants in the chat; a few months before the decision, it had ceased to function.

A couple of days later, the telegram chat "Belarusian Attorneys" was recognized as "extremist formation" in Belarus. At various times, it contained from 150 to 170 participants.
