Lukashenko agrees to give interview to CNN, but on one condition
Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said he is willing to give an interview to the U.S. TV station CNN whose representative was present at the big press conference in Minsk on 9 August, BelTA has learned.

"I am not ruling it out. Yet I have one condition: no editing,” the head of state said. "These are my terms. You can negotiate all the rest with my press secretary." he added.

Aleksandr Lukashenko also invited CNN journalists, who recently released a fake story about a camp for political prisoners near Minsk, to visit the area and see the place for what it is. This is an ordinary military unit, which American journalists made into a place of imprisonment for some reason. The fake was debunked by the Belarusian TV channels.
