The 16-page newspaper-size novel illustrates the events which happened in Belarus
during 2010 Presidential Elections. This is a story about the elections and, in particular,
of the day and night of December 19, when the citizens’ peaceful demonstration against
falsified elections was brutally suppressed by the police. The novel presents two views
on the developments in parallel. The first one shows how the events are interpreted by
the state regime and currently widely publicized by state-run newspapers and television.
The other version was assembled from information presented by independent media, which for
the most part can exist only in the Internet, i.e. blogs, oppositional websites, users’
comments, testimonies of victims and political activists.
