Violence and torture are frequently used by the police as well as by Belarus' penitentiary and security agencies. This is one of the conclusions of the UN Human Rights Council report for 2018.

The heroes of this project have faced police brutality and have been relentlessly trying to defend their rights by legal means. Portraits of this police violence victims-related project alongside their personal interviews were published on TUT. BY — one of Belarus' biggest information and service websites — in 2019.
