Belsat wins Investigative Journalism award

Stanislau Ivashkevich and Dzmitry Mitskevich have received the award in the Investigative Journalism nomination.

Our colleagues made a film about the offshore funds of Lukashenka’s friends. The investigation concerns the mechanisms for overpricing the capital’s real estate.

Among the winners of the competition in five nominations are Yulia Shablouskaya, Anastasia Zanko, Adarya Hushtyn, Anastasiya Rouda, Dzmitry Pankavets, Alyaksandr Klaskousky and others.

The results of the traditional annual “Free Word” competition organized by the Belarusian Association of Journalists were announced during the “Safety of Journalists” conference. The “Free Word” competition is held every year by the Belarusian Association of Journalists with the aim of improving the professional skills of media workers, encouraging talented journalists, and stimulating their activities in upholding the principles of professional journalism and freedom of speech.

Belsat received prizes in this category in 2018 and 2019. Then our journalists took the 2nd and 3rd places.
