elsat journalists will work at the headquarters of all alternative candidates. There will be live broadcasts during the day. Special attention will be paid to the work of the joint headquarters of Svyatlana Tsikhanouskaya, Viktar Babaryka and Valery Tsapkala.
“Our journalists will follow the events and communicate with us from all regions of Belarus and abroad: from Ukraine, Russia, Lithuania, Poland, Germany, Sweden and Switzerland. We know that there have been certain difficulties with the registration of our citizens for voting in Poland, so let’s see how embassies in other countries are prepared for the elections,” says Zmitser Yahorau, head of information unit.
We will cover the voting process, the situation around the counting of votes and the reaction of citizens. The polling stations will close at 20:00. After that, protests may begin.

All events in our studios – Warsaw and Minsk – will be commented by experts from different countries, while the most interesting information will promptly appear on our YouTube channel Belsat News.
Belsat will give voters an opportunity to speak in our streams, polls or communicate with us in social networks. “What the viewers will write in our accounts in social networks, the hosts will read out on the air,” adds Yahorau.
We are also prepared for the situation where the Internet may be blocked in Belarus. If it’s turned off completely, you can watch Belsat via Adta 4A satelite (formerly called Sirius 4).
Follow the events together with Belsat!
