Wikileaks Publishing Around The World.

with one comment

Wikileaks has released a list of media outlets around the world publishing their material.

I was interested to see if any publications in Belarus were covered, and not unsurprisingly they are missing.

However, they still have:

Russian Reporter, Russia
Sov.Sekretno, Russia
Koms Pravda, Russia

I wonder if Israel Shamir is still filtering the Wikileaks material before providing it to news outlets in Russia and Belarus.

Will Wikileaks ever let us know? I doubt it, after all the relationship between Assange and Shamir is a nasty secret :)

Interfax’s piece on Shamir (Google translation):

“MINSK. December 19. INTERFAX.RU – Head of Administration of the incumbent president of Belarus Vladimir MacKay met with the trustee creator of the site Wikileaks Israel Shamir.

Photojournalist portal http://www.interfax.by managed to photograph on the steps of the presidential administration, the only accredited journalist at the Russian-language website Wikileaks Israel Shamir, who arrived in Belarus to observe the presidential elections in the country on December
19.

In the presidential administration refrained from comments on a matter of fact conversation Makey and attorney Assange. However, given that the Russian media have already begun to distribute information about posting on the site Wikileaks data secret correspondence, the U.S. State Department concerning the position of Alexander Lukashenko on the war in Georgia and the construction of the Nord Stream pipeline, we can assume that the conversation was about the Belarusian dossier Wikileaks.
In an interview with Interfax-West “I. Shamir confirmed the existence of the Belarusian dossier. According to him, the website Wikileaks has several thousands of secret documents, which are more or less related to Belarus. He clarified that “the Belarusian dossier – that Americans write from Belarus, the Belarus. There may also be interesting stuff.” “

Rather worrying.
