MINSK, 20 May (BelTA) – Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko has told pioneers about his motto, BelTA has learned.
“Only forward!” the head of state said.
Aleksandr Lukashenko explained his choice of the motto: “Remember, guys, you can never stop. Life is very fast, frenzied, and exuberant. I say it to adults, too. If you stop, the large crowd behind you will stomp all over you. Or you will simply drop behind. Only forward! Little by little every day but only forward! Never stop. Particularly you since you are leaders. If you want to be leaders, then leaders must always be at the forefront. This is why only forward!”
It was mentioned during the meeting that the Belarusian youth union BRSM has a similar slogan: “Only together and only forward!”
Aleksandr Lukashenko remarked that he also uses the “together” message. In particular, he ran for the presidency with it.
“Okay, I agree. I will promote this message everywhere then. Only forward! And together without fail,” he concluded.
