LIDA, 26 October (BelTA) – We need to survive the current difficult period in order to preserve the country for the future generations, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he spoke to the staff of Lida Central District Hospital on 26 October, BelTA has learned.
“We have to withstand this period. If we do not survive it, we will cease to be a state. Our days will be numbered. I have already said that the major powers are trying to divide the world among themselves. They are doing it by forcing, crushing others, wiping their feet on them. We have to stand firm. This is our number one task. We also need to carry out the constitutional reforms. You have asked for changes and the distribution of powers. This is what we will do,” the Belarusian leader said.
“We have to hold out. We will succeed if you listen to me and hear what I say. Today the question is not about me and not about Lukashenko keeping power. Today the question is about our children and the land we live on,” the president said.
