Pavel Marozau is a Belarusian and Estonian civic activist, media manager, and web producer.

In 2005-2006 Marozau participated in the Belarusian presidential election as a member of the opposition candidate’s Alyaksandr Kazulin team. He got under politically motivated persecution by the Belarusian authorities for producing satirical animated films casting president Lukashenko, being accused of slandering the Belarusian president.

In late 2014, Marozau founded Russian-language web television ARU TV aimed to counteract Kremlin propaganda in Eastern Europe. In addition, he is the organizer of the RUBYCON annual conference for Russian and Belarusian pro-democratic experts and journalists conducted in partnership with the Estonian MFA.
