On 26 February the PA “Belarusian Association of Journalists” received the answer of the Ministry of Economics to its request concerning the new order for publication of the TV-program by mass media. In the letter of the vice-minister Uladzimir Adashkevich it was said: “In the case of the cost discrimination of editorials staffs by the Unitarian enterprise “BelTA” the Ministry of Economics will consider the motivated complaint of any subject of economy against violation of its legal rights”.

The ministry reminds that subjects of economy have the right to independently make discounts to purchasers of the TV-program. Nevertheless, “the used discounts are to be equal to all purchasers irrespectively to the form of property”. U. Adashkevich also refers to the Law “On counteraction to monopolistic activity and development of concurrence” that doesn’t allow any actions, aimed at elimination of concurrence by violation of rights of other subjects of economy to free concurrence.
