Video: Friends, colleagues remember rock musician Alyaksandr Kulinkovich, BelaPAN founder Ales Lipay during memorial

A memorial for punk rocker Alyaksandr Kulinkovich and BelaPAN founder and poet Ales Lipay took place in Minsk on September 10.
Mr. Kulinkovich, the Neuro Dubel frontman, died of complications from pneumonia in a Minsk hospital on August 4. He was 46.
Mr. Lipay died a sudden death on August 23 at the age of 52.
The men's friends, relatives and colleagues spoke at the event, which had been organized by filmmaker Andrey Kureychyk.
"Sasha Kulinkovich is an era of Belarusian rock music, a person who created an inimitable style and who was a fantastic film actor," said Mr. Kureychyk.
"Ales Lipay is not just a friend and associate of mine. I think he was the colossus of Belarusian journalism, a person who set the standards of Belarusian journalist to a great extent and who defended these standards and freedom of speech in our country to the last," said Mr. Kureychyk. "This is a huge loss, particularly in a situation where huge pressure is being put on independent media organizations. We know about the 'BelTA case,' an absolutely appalling, barbarian [case], and we know that Ales defended his journalists and others who came under a completely crazy attack to the last."
