The images of two actors - Dzmitry Yesianevich and Heorhy Piatrenka - were removed from the poster of the Russian-Belarusian TV series "Half an Hour Before Spring" about Vladimir Mulyavin and the band "Pesnyary". The scenes with their participation were re-edited and their faces blurred, writes TG channel.

Yesianevich played the role of the drummer of "Pesnyary" Aliaksandr Dziameshka. The actor was a member of the company of the Kupala theater, which left the theater during the massive protests in August 2020. That is the resons  why he is on the "black list" of Belarusian cultural officials.

The TV series also starred actor Mikhail Zuy. Scenes with his participation could also be removed. It is assumed that the Ministry of Culture gave permission to show the series in Belarus only after the mentioned censorship.
