MINSK, 5 May (BelTA) – Information Minister Vladimir Pertsov congratulated journalists on Press Day, BelTA learned from the Information Ministry.

“As I congratulate you on this day, I want to say that these days the role of the media is not just significant, it is huge. Your professionalism, agility, competence, understanding of the processes taking place in the country and the world will determine whether journalism will be in demand in the future. Being at the forefront of the information warfare, you need to challenge those who are trying to encroach on the independence of our country. Do not give anyone a slightest chance to trample on our history, the memory of the heroic deeds of our ancestors, deprive us of confidence in our own strength, create enmity, split the society. Fight fake news. Truth is the best tool in this fight,” Vladimir Pertsov said.

The minister added: “I wish print media journalists, publishers and printers, as before, to be useful in serving their Motherland and people. I wish you creative success, inspiration, interesting topics and brilliant pieces of work.”
