Lukashenka Limits to Half Measures Instead of Mourning

Alyaksandr Lukashenka has ordered all state mass media to limit the broadcasting of entertaining programmes on Sunday from 12 to 6 p.m.

BelTA notes that it s connected with the burial of the Polish President Lech Kaczyński and the other victims of the plane crash near Smolensk.

The state leader has suggested that independent mass media should also change their broadcasting during these hours.
