MINSK, 16 December (BelTA) – During the government conference held on 16 December to discuss the counteraction of sanctions Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko made a few remarks about the operation of nonprofit organizations and foundations in the country, BelTA has learned.

Aleksandr Lukashenko said: “I repeat one more time: traitors cannot be forgiven. There will be no pardon for those, who tried to turn the country upside down and surrender it to outside forces. We see them and we detect dozens and hundreds of them. We've liquidated all those organizations, which were financed from abroad and organized the coup and the insurrection. However hard it may be because we knew what the consequences would be. And today they cry out to restore them back. They will never be restored.”

At the same time Aleksandr Lukashenko stressed: “Any foundations, any organizations can operate in Belarus if they focus on concrete deeds for the benefit of the country. They can take care of ill people, treat COVID-19 patients, help victims of the Chernobyl disaster, help poor and destitute people, people with reduced capabilities, they can treat kids and so on. They are free to do that, the road is open. If someone wants to create foundations, be my guest.”
