MINSK, 26 July (BelTA) – Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko and Prosecutor General Andrei Shved discussed the topic of investigation of the facts of genocide of the Belarusian people at the meeting held on 26 July, BelTA informs.
“I understand that the investigation has just reached the desired scale. More attention should be drawn to the topic of genocide of the Soviet people on the territory of Belarus. Our generation should finally show what was going on in the middle of the last century, during the Great Patriotic War,” the president said. “It is clear that some things were concealed, there was more politics there, no one wanted to speak up. But millions of people died. The relatives of those millions of people are alive. And they want to know the truth. In fact, the whole world should know the truth, they should know what happened, especially in this situation, during this hybrid war which was launched against us."
“Not long ago one ‘smart' person said that Mein Kampf is still relevant. They were Nazis and they still are. The forms are just different,” the Belarusian leader said. “They are hypocrites. Take Lithuania for example. They are pursuing a rabid anti-Belarus policy and yet want us to protect them, figuratively speaking, on our last legs,” he added.
“Therefore, we should never let our guards down. I thank you for taking this topic under investigation. I am regularly briefed about the progress. Should you need help, please do not hesitate to tell me,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.
