“Many journalists are keen to work in Belarus during the elections; we’re receiving applications daily for temporary accreditation,” notes Andrei Savinykh, the Press Secretary of the Belarusian Foreign Ministry. “We’re doing our best to effectively satisfy these applications; at present, we have around 300, with their number likely to increase soon.”

Mr. Savinykh notes that foreign observers, who are currently in the republic, are working constructively countrywide. “Favourable conditions have been created for them,” he explains. “We hope that their conclusions will be constructive and objective.”
