MINSK, 29 December (BelTA) – We are getting ready for Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko's interview with Russian journalist and television presenter Vladimir Soloviev, Press Secretary of the Belarus President Natalya Eismont said in an interview with the Belarus 1 TV channel, BelTA has learned.
“There was a wonderful conversation with Dmitry Kiselyov (Director General of the Russian state news agency MIA Rossiya Segodnya). The interview was discussed for a long time. We have another very interesting interview ahead,” the press secretary said.
TV program host Maria Petrashko clarified whether she was referring to Vladimir Soloviev, who earlier, according to her, had been quite aggressive in his rhetoric towards the press secretary of the Belarusian head of state. “How do you explain such behavior? Is this his last chance or is it just some hype?” she asked.
“I suggest we do not appeal here with such sharp journalistic categories like ‘last chance' or ‘hype'. I personally see it as Vladimir Rudolfovich's great desire to put together this interesting and powerful conversation. I would like to say that we are now moving purposefully in this direction. According to our plan, if everything goes well, we will open our informational year 2022 with a big conversation between Aleksandr Lukashenko and Vladimir Soloviev. I am sure that we will succeed and it will be very interesting,” Natalya Eismont said.
