A Belarusian journalist jumped out from the window of her apartment on the ninth floor in Minsk, having taken her two small children with her.

According to BelaPAN news agency, which referred to the head of the information and public relations department of the Investigative Committee of Belarus, Pavel Traulko, a criminal case was filed into the murder of the two children, under part 2 of article 139 of the Criminal Code. For the time being, the basic version of the tragedy is the woman's suicide that led to the death of her two sons and herself.
