On 17th of May the Ministry of Information blocked the website of Legalize Belarus civic education and advocacy campaign legalize.by. In the official notification “propaganda of marijuana use” was mentioned as a reason.

We decided to move the website no another domain, legalizebelarus.org, to keep it accessible for people in Belarus. However, it appeared to be blocked as well. It turned out that all websites hosted on FastComet server de3.fcomet.com ( were blocked at once.

After numerous appeals to the governmental institutions responsible for the blocking, the IP address was finally unblocked on 13th July 2018. That means that legalizebelarus.org website is now accessible for Belarusians, though legalize.by is still blocked.
