Lukashenko accused the West of seeking to change the government in Belarus

The President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko stated that during the constitutional referendum another attempt to stir up the protests could be made. He told about this on Monday, October 18th during the consideration of the personnel issues in the state security system.

The head of the state emphasized that the authorities should not let their guard down since at the moment the situation in Belarus is tense. The West is trying to liquidate the independence of the country, the Belarusian leader said.

“Sanctions are being imposed. They finance protests, extremism and terrorism. Militants are being selected and trained,” BelTA agency quotes Lukashenko.

Among the methods used by Western countries, the president mentioned information technology and psychological warfare, which create a negative image of power in the population.

These techniques are used by hostile states on employees of the state apparatus, to make them doubt the correctness of the political course of the country’s leadership, he said.

According to Lukashenko, sabotage is developed at the facilities of economy, life support and defense industry. At the same time, political emigrants in Vilnius and Warsaw are preparing radicals, calling them to acts of intimidation.

“Foreign secret services and their accomplices are studying the situation in labor collectives and trying to instigate strikes. They have also reached the judiciary,” summed up Lukashenka.
