The Kremlin won't comment on criticisms of the Belarusian TV against the leadership of Russia. This was announced by the press-secretary of the Russian president, Natalia Timakova, on June 28.

As Telegraf previously reported, June 26, the Belarusian TV Analysts criticized hard the actions of the Russian leadership as well as the Russian media on the eve of the Great Patriotic War. Belarusian TV accused Russia of deliberately ignoring the festivities on June 22, held in Belarus, as well as of plugging the revolution in social networks.

Thus, Belarusian TV discredited Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, who, despite the invitation of the Belarusian leadership, had not arrived in Brest on the 70th anniversary of the Great Patriotic War. Though, the Belarusian TV kept it down low that Alexander Lukashenko had also accepted the invitation of Dmitry Medvedev to visit Moscow on June 22.

In addition, special emphasis was placed on the fact that June 22 the Russian media ignored covering commemorative events held to mark the anniversary of the Second World War in Belarus.
