On May 23, a Ryanair plane flying from Athens to Vilnius changed course and made an emergency landing in Minsk due to a bomb threat on board. Among the passengers there was a Belarussian journalist and one of the co-creators of the oppositionist Telegram-channel NEXTA Roman Protasevich, who was detained after the plane landed. He was later arrested for the duration of an investigation. And although it happened almost two weeks ago, public attention directed at the situation of Protasevich has seen added vim as new developments on the case have come to light.
