Radio 101.2 was a radio station in Belarus. It worked from Minsk.[1] In 1995 and 1996, the radio station used the frequency 101.2 FM. It was sent news and had no connection to the government of Belarus.[2] The people who worked at the Radio 101.2 mostly came from the radio station Belarusian Youth (Belarusian: Беларуская маладзёжная) that had been forced to go out of business.[3]

Soros Foundation helped to buy the things for the new radio in 1995.[4] The station was closed on formally technical reasons.[5] Its frequency was handed over to the Belarusian Republican Youth Union, which still uses it today.[5] The Belarussian government said that the radio station and its frequency were interfering with the radio communications of the Minsk police.[5] Independent groups said that this was another form to stop the freedom of the press in Belarus by the government of Alexander Lukashenko.[5]

Music judge Dzmitry Padbiarezski said in 2000 that the Belarusian radio 101.2 had high public interest because it played good music and its DJs were experts too.[6]
