It is a website to read about the 2020 Belarusian protests and 2020 Belarusian presidential election, more. Because of that, at the end of September 2020, the Ministry of Information of Belarus stopped the TUT.BYs media rights for three months from October 1.[1] The international organization Reporters Without Borders saw it as a cruel attack on the web portal.[2] The USA together with more than fifty other countries and the EU requested the Belarusian authorities to stop such attacks.[3][4]

A man of business Yuri Zisser (1960–2020) made the website in October 2000. The website worked with online media rights since January 2019.[5]
