MINSK, 31 March (BelTA) – Misfortune comes to those who let it in, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he delivered his annual Address to the Belarusian people and the National Assembly on 31 March, BelTA has learned.
"While the people are distracted by the struggle with themselves, by denying the past, traditions, by falling for ethnic issues and all kinds of liberalistic projects, lands, resources, national values are taken over by foreign corporations and financial institutions. And to govern and manage them people like our fugitive oppositionists are selected. The territory of the country turns into a field for experiments: military, biological, political, and ideological ones,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.
The result is the following: the new ‘enlightened' society is brought to the verge of poverty, and the countries – to the verge of being plundered. “In other words, misfortune comes to those who let it in. The most illustrative and very dramatic example is very close, near our southern border, where the carnage will not stop until the overseas master gives the go-ahead,” the head of state stressed.
