Stolichnoe Televidenie journalist awarded for West 2017 drills coverage

The best journalists covering the everyday life of the Belarusian army were chosen in Minsk.

The solemn ceremony was held at the Central House of Officers. One of the awards was received by the CTV channel. Our colleague Yevgeny Pustovoi won the nomination "Professionalism and Journalistic Excellence" for covering the West 2017 drills.

Evgeny Pustovoy, journalist of the television channel Stolichnoe Televidenie:
Any real man likes weapons, camouflage, and news with khaki color. This is such an institution of state power - the army, in which viewers take interest, there is always something curious to find out. The army is the guarantor of the sovereignty of Belarus, so we need to talk about how it protects us, how it is ready to fulfill any tasks that time will require.

The competition was timed to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the Armed Forces of Belarus. The best journalists of various mass media took part in it: TV channels and radio stations, newspapers and news agencies. In total, more than a hundred works were submitted for the creative competition.
