On 30 September, in his speech to the Defense Soviet, Aliaksandr Lukashenka stated it was necessary to protect Belarusian society from foreign informational expansion and “induction of instability by anti-Belarusian information resources”.

A. Lukashenka stated that “during the last decade all military conflicts, escalated in the world by the US and its satellites, began from such informational attacks and massive propagandist campaigns against the country defined for military intervention”, -- BelTA reports. According to him, the leading state of the West actively uses the informational means and strategies for one-lateral pushing of its geopolitical interests. “They are trying to manipulate the public conscience with the aid of mass media and internet, discredit the “inconvenient” countries and artificially create conditions for escalation of social tension with the aim to seize the power”.

According to Lukashenka, Poland and Baltic countries have already turned into a foothold of NATO means of radio electronic struggle and spying. He stated that the large-scale program of radio broadcasting to Belarus had been already declared and promoted. “The West and so called Belarusian opposition that is directed by it, search all possible ways to form a negative public opinion and spread destructive information about our country”, -- he said.
