Belarusian Internet sites started functioning under new rules and are introducing user identification. Also, the Ministry of Information began to receive requests from sites to be registered as a media. As of December 1, the norms have entered into force, according to which user identification mechanisms on Internet resources are obligatory. The registration of Internet resources as mass media also began on December 1. Having received the status of a «network publication», a site becomes a full-fledged media, its employees can work as accredited journalists, and commentators must be identified.
