Lukashenko: Preserving the truth about the war is number one priority today

ST. PETERSBURG, 27 January (BelTA) - Preserving the truth about the Great Patriotic War is the number one priority of the present times, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at a concert dedicated to the 80th anniversary of the complete lifting of the siege of Leningrad in St. Petersburg, BelTA has learned.

“This truth demonstrates the depth of the moral fall of those who stood under the banners of Nazi Germany. It falls a black shadow on many Western European countries. That is our truth. But it is not a question of enmity with these nations. We, the heirs of the victors, oppose the ideology of Nazism, from which the Germans, the French and many other peoples suffered. We also raise the issue of recognizing the genocide of the Soviet people,” the Belarusian leader said.

According to Aleksandr Lukashenko, the exact number of victims of the Great Patriotic War is still unknown. The remains of murdered mothers, holding their babies, infants buried alive are still found both in Belarus and Russia.

“Such cases are countless. Their numbers are horrifying,” the president said.
