Protasevich says wanted to quit politics over disillusionment

MINSK, 14 June (BelTA) -I wanted to quit the political movements because I was disillusioned with what was happening, Roman Protasevich told a briefing for the press in Minsk on 14 June, BelTA has learned.

"My departure from the Nexta project was due to the fact that I saw what processes were taking place and was afraid that it would follow suit of Charter-97 project, that it would be gradually losing the audience, slipping into yellow journalism, would get involved in political games. Leaving the project, leaving Warsaw, I hoped that I would come to Vilnius, join Tikhanovskaya's headquarters and meet people who believe in the ideals. At first I saw a lot of people like me. But then the situation began to change, giving way to internal strife, political games, ambitions. It was more about internal bickering and squabbling. What was going on since the end of autumn till present left me deeply disappointed,” Roman Protasevich noted.

“I wanted to quit Telegram channels, political movements. I wanted to get out of politics, away from these feuds, internal games, because it was totally alien to me,” he said.
