District newspapers of Mahilioŭ region also write only about collection of signatures for nomination of Lukashenka

The websites of the district newspapers of Mahilioŭ region contain few articles dedicated to the presidential electoral campaign of the Republic of Belarus so far.

The newspapers mainly reprint articles of the state news agency BelTA and remarks of Lidziya Yarmoshyna related to the elections.

Most of the district state-owned editions of Mahilioŭ region also posted information about the collecting of signatures for the nomination of candidacies for presidency, but presented it in a weird way – all of them told only about the collection of signatures in support of the incumbent President, Aliaksandr Lukashenka, and illustrated their articles by appropriate photos.

Moreover, most of the district newspapers which provided infofrmation about the collection of signatures, didn't even mention the surnames of other contenders for the presidential position.
