On 5 September, at 5.30-6.30 pm the speech of a candidate from the Party of Communists Belarusian Yanina Huzouskaya was to have been broadcast on the Lad TV channel. Instead, at this time there was shown the news of Brest TV studio. Thus, the electors of Dziatlava and other settlements were deprived of the opportunity to familiarize with the candidate.

At the same time, Mikhail Orda, the pro-governmental candidate running at the same constituency, refused from speaking on TV. Instead, he is actively promoted by the local state newspaper Peramoha. In its issue for 3 September the newspaper wrote that Mr. Orda visited several schools on 1 September and even passed a set of athletic trainers to the secondary school in Navayelnia. He also promised to buy skates and hockey uniform for the school’s hockey team. Of course, there is no information about Yanina Huzouskaya in the local press.
