If you or your relatives are subject to pressure by, say, the secret services, do not be afraid. And be sure to tell us about any attempts to blackmail, threaten, or recruit you. Practice shows that your willingness not to be silent can discourage the secret services to contact you. It is this that we shall talk about today by the example of Vadzim Babin, a 21-year-old activist of the Movement For Freedom (MFF) from Navahradak, who told us about the KGB’s attempt to recruit him.
This fact was published in social media by Yuri Hubarevich, the MFF head.
“There was no reaction (to the activist’s statement about the attempt to recruit him). This is not an agency, which acts publicly and openly. Usually, they try to contact the activists one by one, and the less of this information gets in the public space, the easier it is for them to work and weave their nets,” notes the politician.
Hubarevich addressed the KGB (Committee for State Security) officers in his interview on Belsat TV channel (or rather, repeated his previous proposal):
“I addressed the KGB’s senior management last year with a proposal for a meeting after another attempt to recruit one of our activists. The main condition is that such a meeting should be public. I am ready to talk to them in the presence of journalists or witnesses and answer their questions about the activities of the Movement For Freedom, and, surely, to hear their answers concerning their interest in our organisation.”
