Belarusian judges credited with saving the country

MINSK, 14 April (BelTA) – The judiciary played a significant role in preserving the country during the events of 2020, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said during a ceremony to present the state awards to judges of the Supreme Court, BelTA has learned.

The president cited the wise words uttered by one of the participants of the event: "God forbid we perpetuate our mistakes."

"Once again, I would like to thank you for what you have done and what you are doing for the country," Aleksandr Lukashenko stressed. “In 2020, we perceived those events differently. I assumed that some time would pass and while evaluating, reassessing those events, we would make sure that we did the right thing. Remember: you defended your country. We saved that country."

According to the president, judges played a special role in preserving the country. "I do not remember a single case where the judicial system collapsed, where it failed the country, where it did not stand shoulder to shoulder with those who fought for the future of our Belarus. If we had flinched then, we would have been worse off today than Ukraine. Please, remember this," the Belarusian leader said.

"You have done a great job," the head of state stressed. “If you do not do anything in the years to come (you still have a long way to go), you still have already done a lot for the country. Thank you so much for all this. We will not be ashamed to look people and our children in the eye. Thank you."
