A photo correspondent of the site Interfax.by manage to take picture of the only Russian-speaking WikiLeaks accredited journalist Israel Shamir standing on steps of the president’s administration building. Shamir arrived in Belarus to observe the country’s presidential election on December 19.
The president’s administration restrains from commenting on the matter of the conversation between Uladzimir Makei and Assange’s representative. However, taking into account that the Russian media have already started spreading information about WikiLeaks’ publishing of secret cables of the US Department of State regarding Alyaksandr Lukashenka’s position on the Georgian war and Nord Stream pipeline construction, it may be supposed that the subject was Belarusian files on WikiLeaks.
In his interview to Interfax-Zapad news agency, Shamir confirmed the website possesses files on Belarus. According to him, WikiLeaks has several thousands of secret documents concerning Belarus to a greater or less degree. He added that the files on Belarus were “what the Americans report from Belarus and on Belarus. There may be interesting things.”
