The participation of Nina Fedaruk in the festival is mentioned. In the third page, in the article There has not been such success before Nina Fedaruk offers her opinion concerning the results shown by the Belarusian athletes at this year’s Olympics.

On 30 August the front page of Zara nad Buham features an article Universality, accessibility and quality are the main principles of education informs the readers about a conference in Brest district, at which Nina Fedaruk delivered a speech. ‘Education is one of the main priorities of the state policy in our country.

Here the deputy also speaks about the ‘importance of education in our country’.

We can continue drawing the examples of the ‘multilateral activities’ of Nina Fedaruk and support it all with excerpts from the articles about her which appear in the local press almost everyday, but instead we would like to draw your attention to the provisions of the Electoral Code where it is stated that candidates for deputies must have equal conditions. Fedaruk’ rival, member of the Party of Communists Belarusian Anatol Novik is not mentioned by the local state newspapers. Even now we can speak about a catastrophic disproportion of the candidates; opportunities at Mukhavets electoral constituency #4 which includes Brest, Zhabinka and Malaryta districts.
