MINSK, 6 May (BelTA) - The West is trying to turn the post-Soviet nations into people of unknown provenance, with no ancestry, kinship or tradition, Belarusian Minister of Foreign Affairs Vladimir Makei told the media in Minsk on 6 May, BelTA has learned.
"The West is trying to recode the DNA of the post-Soviet nations, to turn them into people of unknown provenance, with no ancestry, kinship or tradition. They want post-Soviet nations and many sensible people in Europe to forget the atrocities of fascism. This is absolutely unacceptable for us, and we must do everything to counteract such attempts and not to succumb to any political circumstances. I think our people will have enough endurance and courage," the minister said.
Vladimir Makei noted that a full-scale hybrid war is underway in the world. It is being waged in all possible ways. It is very important for Belarus to survive in this war. "We should be worthy of the memory of the generations who died in that war so that we could raise our children and take care of the state. If we fail then probably, we are not worth a dime. Given the current circumstances, it is especially important to withstand this confrontation with our opponents and prove that we are really worthy of our grandfathers and great-grandfathers. It's about survival today – the survival of the state and us as a nation. It is a fundamental issue," the minister emphasized.
