The media need to work out common rules of the game in working with information — opinion

12 Septem­ber, Minsk / Corr. BELTA /

The media need to work out com­mon rules of the game in work­ing with inform­a­tion. Such an opin­ion was expressed to the cor­res­pond­ent of BelTA by the head of the Inform­a­tion Spet­snaz Asso­ci­ation (Rus­sia) Igor Panar­in.

 I am glad that I am par­ti­cip­at­ing in the media for­um, and I will try to express my approaches, even if they are con­tro­ver­sial. It is neces­sary to work out com­mon rules of the game on the inform­a­tion field. Inform­a­tion is a power­ful weapon that can both sta­bil­ize the situ­ation and have a neg­at­ive impact on mil­lions of people. Pro­fes­sion­als from dif­fer­ent coun­tries gathered at the for­um, which will enable us dur­ing the dis­cus­sion to devel­op joint recom­mend­a­tions that will be use­ful for each of the par­ti­cip­at­ing coun­tries, and Belarus will in a cer­tain sense be a lead­er on the glob­al media mar­ket, “Igor Panar­in said.

 From my point of view, the Minsk for­um is turn­ing into a world media site, which deals with the most press­ing prob­lems, espe­cially social media. I do not see any­thing sim­il­ar in the post-Soviet space. Con­firm­a­tion of this — a wide range of par­ti­cipants, includ­ing European, “- added the Rus­si­an expert.
