NewsInfo Are Belarusians proud that their compatriots were involved in so “high-tech” crime?

Yuri Shevtsov Luckily, I have never met anybody being proud of these criminals. However, the people I am communicating with are irritated with the way this case was described in mass media. The international porn network detecting resulted from the operation conducted by Interpol. The police from the USA, Belarus and many other countries participated in the operation. Nobody expected  this complex operation will be described by anti-Belarusian media. They did not require information from the Belarus interior Ministry which was ready to provide the information on this case. Some media did not mention the success of Belarusian police, but wrote that porn studios were in Belarus, but in fact, only the company charging money from customers (mostly US citizens) was located here. Some people continue creating myths about Belarus.
