Vyacheslav Laktiushin

Working at the Belarusian Radio since 1998, from the first days of the English-language service foreign broadcasting. Author and anchorman of news issues, political, cultural and educational projects. My main hobby is inseparable from the job – translation of the Belarusian poetry into English for the series "Cultural palette of Belarus". I am confident, that the Belarusian poetry deserves to be available for the world cultural community.

Grigori Mitiushnikov

Journalism is a way of constant improvement. When telling the audience about some event or presenting interesting persons, one has an opportunity to learn new things. More so as the radio provides a unique possibility to use the emotivity of words to express all that cannot be shown.

Show interest in people and they will show interest in you.

Olga Blazhevich

I have been working at radio "Belarus" since 2004. During these years, I have understood that there is no needless knowledge in the work of a journalist. At the same time, there is no sense in learning, comprehending, searching, clearing up if everything lies dormant in your mind. That’s why I’m glad to have an opportunity to share my knowledge and opinions with our listeners. And it’s even greater to continue learning something new of my country and tell the others about it. Knowing that it’s not in vain…

Sasha Kravchenko

Alexander Kravchenko

An inconsistent person :) I like travels, especially musical ones, and I also take it easy when in trouble, which is my frequent state. I embrace the "Occam's Razor" and common sense - give it a try. I'm somewhat curious and purposeful.

Tatiana Chebotar

A spokesperson, an actress, a writer, a philosopher… You have to try all of these masks when working in journalism. And it is for you to decide, if I manage to do it well!


Vjacheslav Matjushenko

It is hard to speak of yourself. I am in my 50-ies. If it is much, I don’t know. The age does not mean a thing, still, it sometimes makes me sad, when colleagues address me by my patronymic. I would prefer merely by name… The work at the radio is not just a work, but a way of life. Yet, sometimes I feel like forgetting about interviews, reports, studio recordings, and computer editing. The philosophy of my life is: everything will pass – the good and the bad. Sooner or later.

Victoria Bondarenko

I have learnt three main principles while working at radio "Belarus": 
- co-operation, 
- mutual understanding,
- responsibility.

Helen Bells

"There’s nothing more important than feelings. Feelings are the only thing worth living for – apart from the opportunity to tell somebody about them." It’s a quotation from one of my favorite books "Loneliness in the Internet", written by Janush Leon Vishnevski. When I read this phrase I understood that I live and create according to this principle, for I am one of those lucky women who get true satisfaction from their work. Besides, from my point of view journalism is a peculiar factory for creating, storing and spreading of feelings.

"A journalist should know a little about all things
and everything about a few." This idea is the credo by which I am guided not only in my work. Every day I am eager to discover new things and to share it with our listeners.

Tatyana Gargalyk

“Good journalists challenge the routine in their work and beyond. They have their own ideas, they are not limited to traditional methods, they are trying to work in new ways. (....) They refer to intact subjects and are looking for new ways to highlight casual ones”. It seems to me that this definition from one of my favorite books “The Universal Journalist” by D. Randall perfectly suits the staff of Radio “Belarus”. I am very glad to work in a team of "universal journalists!”

Inna Bondarovich

I think, to feel comfortable in journalism, as in any other profession, it is important to develop. The journalist always has to be "in the midst of events." In addition to mastering the technical side of things, we are talking also about the huge amount of information that has to literally pass through one. We must be aware of the latest developments in politics, economy, culture, social sphere. Important is also quick reaction and ability to analyze information, understanding the context. I am grateful to the profession and colleagues for these skills.

Viktoriya Piatkevich

Through the work at the international radio I keep discovering Belarus in a new way when I travel across the country and find out first-hand about the interesting, unusual, varied life of Belarusians.
