MOSCOW, 18 June (BelTA) – The information warfare against Belarus and Russia is coordinated from the same centers, Belarusian Minister of Foreign Affairs Vladimir Makei told the media following the talks with his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov in Moscow on 18 June, BelTA has learned.
“I would like to emphasize that the latest events around Russia and Belarus have demonstrated that there are single centers, strategies and tools to wage the information warfare against both countries. All our foreign ill-wishers see us as a true Union State,” Vladimir Makei said.
The Belarusian minister thanked Russia for its recent assistance, particularly its information support. In his opinion, many Russian federal and regional media outlets have supported Belarus, cited facts, and showed high professionalism and solidarity.
“We are grateful to the Russian diplomatic service for the support on consular and various administrative issues, including in the countries where there are no Belarusian diplomatic missions. We highly appreciate this willingness to provide support where we need it,” stressed Vladimir Makei.
