Lukashenko urged Belarus’ military to strengthen information counteraction

The President of Belarus, Aleksandr Lukashenko, said the country needs to strengthen information counteraction as he attended a meeting at the Defence Ministry, BelTA reports


"We are already working in the field of information counteraction. I will not say that we have achieved great success here, but we cannot do now without an information support for the work that we, the military, are doing in the country. This is not the future, this is already the present – and we are slightly lagging behind,” the Head of State noted.

Aleksandr Lukashenko stressed that it is necessary to strengthen work in the areas of information counteraction, since modern military actions are of a complex nature. "They involve an economic war, an information war, and a shooting war. Differently speaking, these are hybrid wars. Therefore, we need to develop all directions – no matter how difficult it may be," he outlined the tasks.
