MINSK, 2 July (BelTA) – The time has come for a forgetful Europe to go through moral cleansing, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at a meeting in the run-up to Independence Day in Minsk on 2 July, BelTA has learned.
The head of state noted that Belarus intends to show the world the truth about all the atrocities committed by the Nazis during the Great Patriotic War.
"They - all who chose to forget - will have to look again at the grueling evidence of the bloody crimes of their own fathers and grandfathers. I must admit that we were delicately silent. In our Slavic way we believed that children were not responsible for their parents. We still think so. But the time has come for the forgetful Europe to give itself a moral cleansing," Aleksandr Lukashenko stressed.
"Let them look and draw conclusions. We, while reminding them, will remember that freedom for us is a synonym for the word ‘to live'," the president added.
