Political exiles continue their campaign to pressure the IMF into blocking resources for Belarus, but so far without success. Belarusian political parties and civil organisations avoid publicity due to repression but continue to work with activists.

Civil society and political organisations discuss an alternative draft of the proposed constitutional amendments and conduct online voting regarding the most controversial topics.

The NAU continues to mobilise the diaspora, hoping to .influence Minsk via pressure on international bodies. Opinion leaders send an open letter to the Director-General of UNESCO about the repression of Belarusian culture and the resulting humanitarian crisis. However, the campaign to block IMF funds has not succeeded as yet as the fund declares its readiness to allocate money to Belarus. Meanwhile, Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya’s office launches an online solidarity platform to engage activists and support the protest movement.

As a result of sanctions pressure supported by political exiles, the authorities are compelled to signal readiness for dialogue with Western capitals, including releasing some political prisoners.

The IT business sector is openly critical of the actions of the Belarusian authorities. Arkady Dobkin answered 12 questions about EPAM and the current state of the Belarusian IT industry.

The media community is agitating internationally in protest at the repression and liquidation of the Belarusian Association of Journalists. International journalistic organisations have strongly condemned the closure of the BAJ.

Due to persecution and technical blocking, the audience for independent media and Telegram channels is declining as the authorities partially redirect traffic to state-controlled media.

Political organisations continue to adapt to working with the activists and the population under repressive conditions, which has resulted in the avoidance of public activity.

Meanwhile, symbolic acts persist on a small scale via the hanging of protest symbols etc.

Consequently, civil society and political organisations within Belarus are waiting for repression to slacken before resuming activities.
