Lukashenko describes alleged mass media freedom infringement in Belarus as old cliche

MINSK, 5 July (BelTA) – The alleged infringement of mass media freedom in Belarus is nothing but an old cliche. Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko made the statement during the plenary session held on 5 July on the occasion of the solemn opening of the 26th annual session of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly in Minsk, BelTA has learned.

Alexander Lukashenko remarked: “Belarus’ mass media space develops vigorously. Mass media with different forms of ownership and political views are represented here. The alleged infringement of mass media freedom in Belarus is a cliche from the arsenal of the past. It lacks any sense in the age of the Internet. And you will not be able to reproach us as far as access to the Internet and affordable prices are concerned.”

The president pointed out that multiple foreign TV channels broadcast their programs in Belarus 24/7 without any problems, including Euronews and major Russian TV channels.

“We have no problems with mass media. Let me stress it one more time: those, who want to know what’s going on in the world, do.”
