We must counteract any manifestations of xenophobia and racism. We must resist any manifestations of ethnic or religious hatred. Today everything is done in Belarus to preserve the memory about the Holocaust victims, to guarantee that every person stands equal before the law regardless of their race, the color of their skin, national or ethnic origins. Belarus supports countries, international organizations, and the Jewish community as they work to immortalize the memory of World War Two victims and the deeds committed by veterans to save the world from the brown plague.”
