Lukashenko calls to add high quality to peaceful Belarusian life

MINSK, 8 January (BelTA) – It is necessary to add high quality to the peaceful and calm Belarusian life, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he visited the Church of the Holy Prophet John the Baptist near Minsk on Christmas, BelTA has learned.
Aleksandr Lukashenko recalled that when he had attended the opening of this church in 2020, local parishioners had invited him to visit this church again. “I promised to do so, that’s why I am here today. I have come to this bright, good church to wish Merry Christmas to all of you, all Belarusians, visitors, everyone who hears me,” said the president.
He noted that the country has important secular holidays, such as Victory Day, Independence Day, as well as religious ones, such as Christmas or Easter. “They have lived on through the years; they are in our minds and hearts. And, as time has shown, it is impossible to erase them from our lives. That is why they are great,” the Belarusian leader emphasized.
Aleksandr Lukashenko remarked that another year has passed, and all the years of the current five-year plan, starting from 2020, have been hard. “But the Lord, probably, has been keeping us away from harm’s way. We have managed to live through these years peacefully. And when you and I opened this church, you asked only for one thing – peace, as if you knew that these years would be hard. We have brains and hands to do everything else in our country. And so it happened. So far so good. I wish to God that it continues like this,” said the head of state. “We are moving from the Year of Peace and Creation (there can be no creation without peace) into the Year of Quality. We need to add high quality to this peaceful, calm Belarusian life on this small island where we live today. Make sure that people are happy. People should be happy and proud of the life they have as they wake up in the morning and go to bed or put their babies to sleep,” the head of state noted.
“Although it sounds a bit clichéd, you would agree with me: everything depends only on us. Only on us! On me, of course, but a good life is impossible without you. Therefore, we need to add quality to this peaceful, calm, creative life. And then everything will be fine,” the president assured.
Aleksandr Lukashenko noted that he often sets only one big task for the government: “Take care of the economy, the rest is on me.” The same applies to regional development.
“Therefore, we need to make every effort to ensure the high quality of goods that we produce (and the economy is about producing and selling products). Our goods should sell even better than today,” the head of state concluded.
