MINSK, 11 February (BelTA) – Belarus should cope with all external challenges and prevent the repetition of tensions which hit all post-Soviet countries in the past, Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko said in his report at the 6th Belarusian People's Congress on 11 February, BelTA informs.
“Our calm life, our sovereignty and stability were seriously tested. Having coped with it, we must clearly realize that we have prevented a big trouble. You remember the consequences of a series of the so-called color revolutions, and not even riots, on the post-Soviet space. They resulted in permanent, chronic instability and impoverishment,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.
The head of state stressed that all people who care about the future of Belarus should do their best to prevent the repetition of those events in our republic.
In his words, the intention of external forces to put pressure on us is connected not only with Lukashenko. “There are different goals. We are unwanted, we should not have emerged on the international arena. We will be attacked all the time. And we must survive,” Aleksandr Lukashenko concluded.
