Euroradio

A parliamentary candidate put on a gas mask during his speech on Belarus-3. Member of the Greens Dzmitry Kuchuk running for MP in Smarhon constituency #59 urged people to try to stop the construction of Astravets NPP. It is dangerous for the environment and the energy produced at the Belarusian NPP ‘will be very expensive’, he said.

"If we do not stop the construction, we will look like this,” Kuchuk said and put on a gas mask.

Another parliamentary candidate – Uladzimir Padhol – recorded his TV speech in … a tank helmet and a bullet-proof vest. We may be able to watch his speech in the evening.
