About us

Buro Media is a team of Belarusian investigative journalists. We expose those who abuse money and power to the detriment of society. Our investigations of corruption and other violations of law are part of our mission to make a difference.


We document the facts of bribery, fraud, tax evasion, money laundering, nepotism, sanctions evasion, human rights violations, and other illegal activities in a broad spectrum of fields, including but not limited to economics, education, politics, and medicine.


We have conducted multiple high-profile investigations, collaborating with partners from numerous countries such as the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP), the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), The Guardian (UK), Siena (Lithuania), Re:Baltica (Latvia), Delfi (Estonia), Front Story (Poland), Armando.Info (Venezuela), and Dossier (Austria), among others. Our investigators worked on the most massive offshore data leak, the Pandora Papers. The investigations carried out by us won accolades at the Volnaje Slova competition and were selected as finalists for the esteemed European IJ4EU Impact Award.


Our investigations had real-life consequences: European leaders enforced sanctions, and law enforcement officials initiated inspections and criminal investigations. They also led to a reversal of the public procurement results and the resumption of life-saving surgeries in regular hospitals.



This opens up even more opportunities for us to cooperate internationally
