The regional newspaper “Minskaya Prauda” and the national “Narodnaya Hazeta” have published interviews with a present MP, Viktar Huminski who intends to run for the Parliament at Barysau village constituency #63.

The interviews “Parliamentary Perspective” in “Minskaya Prauda” and “To Be Honest before Oneself and before the People” in “Narodnaya Hazeta” are almost identical: Viktar Huminski is given an opportunity to tell how well deputies of the fourth convocation worked and what personal characteristics a deputy must possess.

The fact that signatures in Huminski's support are being collected at Barysau village constituency #63 is not mentioned in the interviews, but if one takes this circumstance into account, the publications turn out to be nothing but unlawful agitation.
