Media council to discuss distribution issues


Members of the Public
Coordinating Council for the Media will discuss distribution issues at their
next meeting.

About a dozen of Belarusian
periodicals have no access to state-monopolized retail and subscription
distribution systems.


The Council has recommended that
distributors and editors of the blacklisted papers meet to find a common ground.


Formed in October 2008, the
13-member Council is led by Pavel Yakubovich, editor in chief of the
government-controlled newspaper Sovetskaya Belorussiya.
