Recording, translation and subs by Sonya L. Revision by  Bita J.

Transcript of the interview:

Host: Alexander, hello! I’ve heard that you’ve become a producer now. You have your own group in Belarus, which you are preparing for Eurovision. Is that true? Tell us more.

AR: I also heard that I’ve become a producer. To be honest, I wrote a song. I have an idea for the number. I have an idea about the Belarusian accent.. you know when we sing in English, we all, Slavic people, have a funny accent. And instead of hiding it, I wrote a song about it.. the girls sing that “I will always love you, but if you take me, then my accent will have to stay with me”.

AR: I have a producer in Belarus, and he helps us. It’s he who will develop this group. I wouldn’t organise the casting and listen to 400 girls just for one song.Of course, we’ll continue to make songs for them and so on. But, first and foremost, I am a composer.
