Belarus, Russia’s Kostroma Oblast to advance cooperation in mass media

MOSCOW, 29 June (BelTA) – The Belarusian Information Ministry and the Press and Mass Media Office of the Kostroma Oblast Administration have signed a cooperation agreement, BelTA learned from Belarusian Information Minister Lilia Ananich during the fourth Forum of Regions of Belarus and Russia on 29 June.

Lilia Ananich said: “We are starting to bolster our interaction on a legal basis.”

The Belarusian Information Ministry vigorously cooperates with a number of Russian regions. It is now necessary to advance practical projects, noted Lilia Ananich. As an example she mentioned the festival of Belarusian and Russian regional TV companies Image of Time. The development of Union State mass media through reliance on new information technologies is a priority for Belarus and Russia.

On 29 June Lilia Ananich took part in the forum’s panel session on the role of information technologies in the development of civil society institutions in the Union State of Belarus and Russia. The minister said: “It is important for us to share the best practices not only in the field of traditional mass media. It is important to make up our minds how we should interact in order to implement concrete tasks and programs using information technologies.”

The majority of young people get information from the World Wide Web these days. “What kind of information is it? What appeals do young people hear? What values are inspired? These questions are important for all of us. Our common task is to use information to advance integration processes,” stressed Lilia Ananich. “The integration processes should be understood bearing in mind that Belarusians and Russians are historically close and friendly people and nations to each other. We should not forget that together we are stronger, that the Belarusian-Russian economic space is a blessing, that the implementation of our joint information projects is aimed not simply at sharing information, but at building a solid future for our nations.”
