LOGOISK DISTRICT, 22 March (BelTA) – There is no justification for a genocide policy, nothing is more important than a human life. Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko made the relevant statement during a ceremony held on 22 March to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the Khatyn tragedy, BelTA has learned.
During the ceremony Aleksandr Lukashenko addressed young Belarusians since the major overhaul and reconstruction of the memorial complex Khatyn had been given the status of an All-Belarusian Youth Construction Site.
Aleksandr Lukashenko stressed: “In these minutes I'd like to address young Belarusians. We are proud of you. Of all of you. Particularly of those, who took part in the reconstruction of this memorial complex. The museum we open under the Khatyn sky today is your child as well. Together we have implemented a project designed to make the memory of horrors of that war even more painful. I very much wanted people to feel pain in their hearts even before they set foot on the sacred soil of Khatyn. I think we've managed to accomplish that.”
“In the Year of Peace and Creation we, Belarusians say it clearly and loudly: there is no justification for a genocide policy, nothing is more important than a human life,” the president said.
