The majority of web-sites of government newspapers in Brest region are not covering the current election campaign, say activists of the Human Rights Defenders for Free Elections campaign.

In particular, the parliamentary elections have received little or no coverage at all in the district newspapers of Pruzhany, Stolin, Pinsk and Drahichyn.

Meanwhile, some state-run newspapers have published articles promoting pro-government candidates, e.g. Uladzimir Puzyreuski, President Lukashenka’s aide running for Parliament in constituency No. 8.
