ORSHA DISTRICT, 5 November (BelTA) - The October Revolution day, which is celebrated annually in Belarus, has a historical significance, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said as he talked to residents of the town of Bolbasovo, Orsha District, on 4 November, BelTA has learned.

“We left the October Revolution day a holiday in the national calendar. Of course, the attitude to this holiday is a bit different. The revolution is a distant past now. It has been more than a hundred years. But this is our history. We cannot erase it or rewrite it. Whoever tried to throw a stone in the past by rewriting the history got this stone in the present. We left this day as the holiday on our national calendar. But, of course, time goes by, and we need to fill this holiday with some other meaning,” the head of state said.
