The Belarusian Exarchate of the Russian Orthodox Church plans to have
its own radio station.
A concept for the station's programming has already been devised,
Andrey Aleshka, a lawyer at the Exarchate's Minsk Eparchial Office,
According to him, the station would cover the most worrying issues
and various aspects of the life of people and Belarusian society in
general, including family and marriage issues, school education, the
demographic situation, and healthcare. "Since this electronic media
outlet will be Orthodox, all these issues will be covered from the
Christian moral and ethical viewpoint," Mr. Aleshka said.
At a meeting in late January, the top Orthodox clergyman in Belarus,
Minsk and Slutsk Metropolitan Filaret, asked Alyaksandr Lukashenka
for assistance in setting up the radio station. The Belarusian leader
then said that such a station might be launched some day.
According to Mr. Aleshka, the Exarchate currently works on papers to
get its station registered in accordance with the established procedure.
