MINSK, 12 May (BelTA) – Mass media turned into instruments of provoking internal conflicts in countries, State Secretary of the Belarusian Security Council Aleksandr Volfovich said in an interview with the Russian magazine Natsionalnaya Oborona, BelTA has learned.

“Electronic means of mass communication are an effective tool to create internal conflicts and to destroy states. It all starts with the reformatting of collective consciousness, and here, first of all, our youth is in the crosshairs,” the chief of the Security Council noted.

According to him, Belarus and Russia have repeatedly faced attempts to impose alien values. The West encourages attempts to distort the historical truth and destroy cultural heritage and national identity of Belarusians and Russians. “Monuments to soldiers who died fighting the brown plague are barbarically and thoughtlessly destroyed in European countries. There are attempts to downplay the leading role of the Soviet people, all the republics of the former Soviet Union in defeating fascism,” Aleksandr Volfovich noted.

He emphasized that the history of the Belarusian and Russian peoples features many important events that should not be forgotten. Against the backdrop of the redistribution of spheres of influence in the world, a careful historical policy is the only effective strategy for further sustainable development, the state secretary noted.

“This is the most important factor of national security. Therefore, if we want to successfully respond to all the challenges facing our states, we must preserve our historical memory, protect it from distortions and falsifications, and defend our unity,” Aleksandr Volfovich said.
