MINSK, 2 July (BelTA) - The Belarusian people are making the right choice today, as they have always done, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at a meeting in the run-up to Independence Day on 2 July, BelTA has learned.
“On such a day we do not want to talk about our neighbors who have elevated murderers and maniacs to the rank of national heroes. It is unpleasant to recall those who sympathize with them here, as well as in Russia. Unfortunately, the cause of the policemen and other accomplices of Hitler's murderers still lives on in the terrible creations and political manifestos of today's neo-Nazis. You all see this. That is why today I would like to thank our Belarusian people in the first place. Looking at the pathetic attempts of modern collaborators to rewrite the history of the Great Patriotic War, our Belarusian people are making the right choice, as always” said Aleksandr Lukashenko.
The president stressed that he was proud of all those who keep the memory of the heroic generation that performed a feat, the greatness of which knows no bounds. “I am proud of all those who take care of the monuments to soldiers and civilians, who bring their children to them, who gather living memories and facts about the Great Patriotic War and our heroes, who write pictures, songs, books and shoot films. I say thank you to everyone who fight in the information war for our historical memory. You are the true heirs of the winners!” the head of state said.
