Importance of investigating WW2 crimes against Belarusian nation emphasized

MINSK, 28 January (BelTA) – The large-scale investigation launched upon the initiative of the Prosecutor General's Office into crimes against the Belarusian nation is important and relevant. Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko made the statement in his address to the nation and the parliament on 28 January, BelTA has learned.

The president mentioned the importance and relevancy of the Prosecutor General's Office's initiative to launch a large-scale investigation into crimes against the Belarusian people. New facts of the Nazi occupation are being revealed. “I am talking about the Nazi's purposeful genocide policy in Belarus' territory. The elimination of over 3 million residents is its blood-soaked result,” he stressed.

According to the head of state, it is extremely important for the collected body of evidence, testimonies of witnesses of war crimes, results of expert evaluations and excavations not to be simply stored in archives. It is inadmissible to allow the evil deeds of the Nazi and their accomplices to be erased from the memory. A monument to children, who were victims of the Great Patriotic War in the village of Krasny Bereg, and other sorrowful places in Belarus tell the story of the Nazi crimes louder than a thousand words.

“We will push for the international recognition and condemnation of the genocide of the Belarusian nation,” the Belarusian leader stated.
