Lukashenko: Belarusians fill October Revolution Day celebration tradition with new meaning

MINSK, 5 November (BelTA) - The Belarusians have filled the tradition of celebrating the October Revolution Day with a new meaning, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at the opening of the cardiac surgery and cardiotherapy units of the Mogilev Oblast Hospital on 5 November, BelTA has learned.

The head of state noted that October Revolution Day was one of the most significant holidays along with Victory Day in the Soviet times. Later this holiday went into the background. Belarus, however, decided to keep the tradition of celebrating the Great October Revolution. Moreover, Belarusians have given a new meaning to it: the country opens socially important facilities ahead of 7 November.

“Many countries decided that this was a bad day, a bad holiday. I do not think so. This is our history after all. Everything we have today has its roots in the Soviet era. After being crushed by the Great Patriotic War (there was nothing left in Belarus after the war), we revived the country. If not for those times, we would not have been able to create much and we would have lost much of what was created,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.

The head of state emphasized that the Belarusians have never abandoned the best legacy of the era. “The main thing is that this is our history. It is possible to change, adjust the future, but we cannot change the past. Today we can see that we did the right thing by filling the tradition of celebrating the Great October Revolution with a new meaning,” the president said.

The president stressed that it was this event that gave start to the construction of the Belarusian state in the last century. “We continue the path of those who laid the first bricks in the construction of this state,” he said.
