MINSK, 12 January (BelTA) – Patriotism means to completely dedicate oneself to one's own mission, to live for the good of the native country and the nation. Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko made the statement during the ceremony held on 12 January to present Spiritual Revival awards, special prizes to art luminaries, and Belarusian Sports Olympus awards, BelTA has learned.

The head of state described today's evening as wonderful. “We've already started the routine life of the new year but we still feel the atmosphere of light and kind New Year and Christmas festivities. The atmosphere that inspired us to institute the unique Spiritual Revival award many years ago,” he noted.

Aleksandr Lukashenko stressed that the Spiritual Revival award ceremony is one of the key events of the year. It has become part and parcel of the life of Belarusians as a modern tradition that connects the past and the present of the native land, fills goals and aspirations of citizens with a special meaning, he noted.

Aleksandr Lukashenko stated: “Year after year such meetings bring us together with the best and most sincere feelings: pride in worthy people, gratitude for compassion and kindness, courage and heroism, veneration of the creativity and talent of our compatriots. We, Belarusians, are a nation with a beautiful soul. I think about it every time when I study success stories and sign award papers. I think [the head of the Belarusian Orthodox Church] Metropolitan Veniamin and I think the same thoughts at this time. There are primarily hardworking and honest people behind every professional or personal accomplishment. People, who wholly dedicate themselves to their own mission, people, who live and work for the benefit of the native country and the nation. It is what patriotism is all about.”

According to Aleksandr Lukashenko, patriotism is manifested in love for children and a selfless aspiration to dot on those, who are deprived of motherly caress by fate. It is manifested in the selfless fight for the life and health of people, in the careful attitude to the cultural legacy of the nation, time-honored traditions and spiritual values of Belarusians. “It is manifested in the protection of historic truth, the memory about heroes of our land, the information sovereignty of the country. In the nurturing of young Belarusians to love their country and take pride in their ancestors, in sport victories for the glory of Belarus,” he added.
