Every period of Belarus' history needs to be evaluated from the point of view of national priorities and interests, BelTA learned from Deputy Head of the Belarus President Administration Igor Lutsky.
Igor Lutsky said: “It is necessary to treat history with care. And every period of our history needs to be understood from the point of view of national priorities and interests. Instead of looking around we have to follow our own road.”
The official stressed that Belarusians are getting smarter and disinformation has an ever diminishing chance of affecting the Belarusian society. “We've started working with young people, with the younger generation. We try not to miss any target audience in an effort to explain the state position. And everything that is good for the state is good for every person. Everything that is good for the person is good for sovereignty.”
