MINSK, 17 September (BelTA) – Belarusians live on their land and will not give this land away to anyone. This is unshakable, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he addressed the patriotic forum "This is OUR History!" to mark the Day of People's Unity in Minsk on 17 September, BelTA has learned.
Aleksandr Lukashenko stressed that politics has always dominated history, and the events of the past century were very much politicized. "The time when Belarus got divided was a mess. The situation on the territory of our Belarus was extremely complicated. Not only historians, but also many other political scientists, lawyers and civil servants will take a long time to understand what happened," he said.
"But one thing is constant: we live on our own land. This is our land from ancient times. It's an unshakable truth. We will not give this land to anyone," the Belarusian leader stressed.
