На русском языке: Алексей Венедиктов готовится к интервью со Светланой Тихановской на «Эхе Москвы»
На беларускай мове: Аляксей Венядыктаў рыхтуецца да інтэрв’ю са Святланай Ціханоўскай на «Рэху Масквы»

Last night, Alexei Venediktov, the editor-in-chief of the Echo of Moscow, suggested «pose some questions» to Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya, stressing that the interview would be primarily for the Russian audience. This information appeared on his Facebook.

Echo of Moscow is considered one of the most independent media in the country, but Venediktov occasionally notes his links with the Kremlin and his acquaintance with Putin.

Until now, of all the major Russian media, only the Dozhd TV channel, which has the status of a foreign agent in Russia, took an interview with Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya. With the help of the law on foreign agents, the Russian authorities are fighting unwanted media and NGO.

Rumors that Alexei Venediktov is going to interview the leader of the Belarusian opposition Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya appeared before reliable information. For example, yesterday Serge Kharytonau, iSANS media expert, linked the rudeness of Belarusian TV presenters against Russian colleagues and the president with the reaction of the Belarusian authorities to «signals» from the Kremlin, one of which is the upcoming interview with Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya on the Echo of Moscow.

"Of course, it is too early to talk about a change of course in the Kremlin, but the junta is being sent a clear signal on the eve of the meeting of Lu and Pu on November 4",– Serge Kharytonau believes.

However, not all political analysts agree with him. About what happened on Belarusian television this weekend and how it can end — read in our material:
