Expert: Europeans, Americans, Brits virtually zombified at present

At the recent meeting with participants of the 52nd meeting of the CIS Council of Heads of Security Agencies and Special Services, Aleksandr Lukashenko, said that an informational and psychological impact, the dissemination of deliberately false information are among the key threats today. Aleksei Avdonin, an analyst at the Belarusian Institute for Strategic Studies, explained why the West resorts to publishing fakes.

In his talk with Alfa Radio, Mr. Avdonin noted that it is often not the event itself that matters, but how it is covered and what pictures are used, “It is necessary to understand that the whole manipulation of large global media is based on a mixture of truth and an illusory picture. This is the so-called radio effect: the greater the effect of an impression, the deeper it goes into people’s consciousness. This is done solely to form the required point of view of society. Elections are coming in the United States and Ukraine, and everyone – primarily, the West – needs to show that they have the ability to attack Moscow with drones, that they are trying to besiege Russia in this way. As a result, they should be trusted more than everyone else.”

According to the expert, such informational and psychological tricks, distortion of reality are connected with the need to create the right image in the collective consciousness of society.

“The most dangerous thing here is that our, Chinese, Russian TV channels cannot break into the information space of the collective West to present a different point of view. The most severe censorship is observed there, everything is cut out. In these conditions, we feel sorry for the citizens of the European Union, the United States, the United Kingdom, since they are actually in a state of zombification – in the same way as the population of fascist Germany during the reign of Hitler," Mr. Avdonin summed up.
