Allegedly, hacktivists from the Belarusian Cyber Partisans group have obtained passport data on all citizens of Belarus. They are now planning to sell NFTs containing passport information of the Belarusian president, Alexander Lukashenko, as well as his closest associates.

Lukashenko, who has been helming Belarus since the country’s inception in 1994, is being called a dictator by the Belarusian Cyber Partisans. But, they’re not the only ones.

For one example, Lukashenko was accused by the Organize Crime and Corruption Reporting Project of leading a corrupt regime and violently stifling political enemies. In recent times, he awoke the anger of Cyber Partisans by supporting the Russian war effort against Ukraine.

The hackers have already tried to sell the Lukashenko passport NFT on his birthday, this Tuesday, by using the NFT marketplace OpenSea. However, OpenSea quickly eliminated the offer.

Apart from these activities, the Cyber Partisans are also accepting donations, primarily in crypto, for their fight against the regime.
