SHKLOV, 24 January (BelTA) – At the meeting with the team of Shklov Newsprint Mill Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko explained why he does not use a smartphone and other gadgets, BelTA has learned.
“Maybe, it is bad that I do not have even a smartphone. I see other presidents staring at their iPhones. I do not do it. I know what safety is. However, it is not only about safety: I have other people doing it for me,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.
According to the head of state, if someone calls him on the mobile phone (this happens very rarely), his assistant brings him the phone. “I hardly use this type of communication. These gadgets are in your pocket, and wherever you go, someone is watching you. Do you really want it? I don't,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.
The head of state also pointed to the negative impact of radio waves on human health and said that great benefits of the internet come with possible threats associated with artificial intelligence.
