Belarusian mass media urged to explore new forms of work

MINSK, 10 April (BelTA) – Belarusian mass media need to explore new forms of work in the modern conditions, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said during a meeting with the heads of major state mass media outlets, BelTA has learned.

“I feel nostalgic. I have not visited you for a while. I used to come to visit you often in the past. Probably, it's a good feeling. So let us agree that this meeting will not be my press conference but an honest and straightforward talk. We all work for one and the same goal. So for me it is very important to have a frank conversation. You are not only journalists. You are citizens: conscious, educated, informed citizens of Belarus,” the president said.

“The goal is to make this conversation useful. I would like to leave the studio with something. And I hope you too will make some conclusions and take some ideas home with you,” Alexander Lukashenko said.

“The need for this frank conversation is long overdue. The reason for today's event is the start of the new phase in your work. We cannot continue to work in old ways. I do not want to say that everything was bad in the past. Without bad and good things we would not have had the new stage,” the Belarusian leader said.

“We should bring to the forefront the things that mobilize and consolidate us, make the country even more independent, peaceful and focused on the future,” the president is convinced.

He added that he is in favor of evolutionary processes. “Revolutions cost too much, bring drastic consequences. We have witnessed enough revolutions already. We do not need them. We need to evolve. At the same time, as the classic put it, we must stand on the shoulders of previous generations and learn the best from them,” Alexander Lukashenko said.
