MINSK, October 26 (Itar-Tass) — Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko believes serious attention must be paid to what is going on in information space.
“We must pay serious attention to what is going on in information space, which is now used on certain directions as an attempt to destabilize the situation in this or that state,” the president said at a meeting with participants in a session of the CSTO Parliamentary Assembly Council on Wednesday.
Lukashenko, in particular, drew attention to what is going on around Arab states. Regrettably, the situation there has not improved, the Belarusian president stressed.
He drew attention to the fact that radical Islamists had won the election in Tunisia, as well as to the situation around Egypt and Libya. “We must not think that this is far away and does not concern us, but we must not think either that we tremble before these networks [revolutions on appeals through social networks],” Lukashenko noted.
He mentioned as an example Belarus, where, according to him, attempts have been made all year long to destabilize the situation via the Internet. “We have learned to fight against that evil and we have agreed [within the framework of the CSTO] to coordinate our efforts,” Lukashenko noted.
“There is no fear or bans” in that respect, he stressed. “We don’t shut down the Internet. You are welcome to speak, discuss, but we will take necessary measures if this is illegal,” he added.
