Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko talked to journalists of the Riga Children's Academy of Radio and Television before the opening ceremony of the international festival of arts Slavianski Bazaar in Vitebsk, BelTA has learned.
The young journalists were waiting for the head of state at the Summer Amphitheater as the president was going to open the festival. Aleksandr Lukashenko arrived for the ceremony and was heading to the stage.
"Guys, not now, please. The president is about to take to the stage and give a speech. Let's do it later, please," the president's press secretary Natalya Eismont said upon seeing the academy's film crew.
"Let people do their job, please," Aleksandr Lukashenko responded. Despite the limited time, he readily agreed to talk to the guys and answer their questions.
"Good afternoon! How are our neighbors doing?" the head of state asked.
Nadezhda Bukharova, the head of the group and the founder of the academy, replied: "Well, let's see how we are doing... You are well aware of how things are. We don't know what will happen to us when we come back home," she said.
"Well, stay then," Aleksandr Lukashenko suggested.
"This is what we want. We are already networking," Nadezhda Bukharova replied.
