Senior lieutenant of the KGB Fedosyuk, who was shot by a resident of Minsk, was awarded the order for courage
An employee of the State Security Committee (KGB) of Belarus, senior lieutenant Dmitry Fedosyuk, who was killed during the storming of an apartment of a resident of Minsk, was posthumously awarded the Order For Personal Courage. This was reported on the website of the President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko.
The decree was signed on December 2. “The KGB officer was awarded this high award for courage and personal courage displayed in the line of duty,” it was reported.
On September 28, Belarusian security forces stormed the apartment of programmer Andrei Zeltser. The KGB said that they were “working out” the addresses where the terrorists could be. Zeltser shot Fedosyuk and was killed by return fire. His widow was arrested.
After that, the website of the Komsomolskaya Pravda in Belarus newspaper was blocked in the republic because of an article about Zeltser. The author of the material, Gennady Mozheiko, was arrested on charges of inciting hatred and insulting a government official.
