Journalistic investigation reveals true aims White Legion pursued in Belarus

The journalistic investigation White Legion of Black Souls has revealed the true goals of the organization, which was preparing to go to the streets with weapons.

Its participants during many years have been forging ties with Ukrainian radicals and have been adopting their combat experience. The outlook and ideology of these people was based exclusively on the theory of ethnic superiority and countering the authorities using force.

Their plans included not only provocations, but also terrorist attacks. The book entitled "War in the crowd" has become their main reference. A criminal case under article 287 "The creation of an illegal armed formation" was initiated against members of White Legion. This is an unprecedented case in the history of independent Belarus.
