Belarusian Embassy condemns growing radicalization of Ukraine's anti-Belarusian position

MINSK, 3 January (BelTA) - The Belarusian Embassy has expressed a strong protest in connection with the growing radicalization of the anti-Belarusian position of Ukraine, reads a statement posted on the website of the Belarusian diplomatic mission, BelTA has learned.

"The Belarusian Embassy in Ukraine sent a note to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine condemning mass participation of activists of the self-exiled Belarusian extremist opposition under the flags of Belarusian collaborators and Third Reich puppets in a nationalist march held in Kiev on 1 January with the tacit acceptance of the Ukrainian authorities, and with wide coverage in the Ukrainian media, including national TV," the diplomatic mission said.

The statement said that “the outrageous attempts to glorify the collaborators, murderers and executioners of the Belarusian people echo with pain in the hearts of the Belarusians who survived the horrors of the fascist occupation and the genocide during the Great Patriotic War. Celebrating the bloody executioners of Khatyn and thousands of other Belarusian villages and towns by their ideological successors is an insult to the memory of our ancestors who died for the freedom and independence of the Belarusian people.”

“The embassy strongly protests against the growing radicalization of the anti-Belarusian position of Ukraine, which condones the public celebration of collaborators and executioners of the Belarusian people, and demands that Ukraine stop trying to glorify crimes against humanity, which have no statute of limitations and cannot be forgiven by the Belarusian people,” the embassy stressed.
