MINSK, 27 April (BelTA) - There will be no revision of history, justification of extremism and revanchism in Belarus, Chairman of the House of Representatives Vladimir Andreichenko said at a meeting of the eighth session of the House of Representatives of the National Assembly of the seventh convocation in Minsk on 27 April, BelTA has learned.
"Unfortunately, the ideology of racial superiority is rearing its head again in modern Europe. Monuments to soldiers-liberators are being demolished, acts of vandalism at Soviet military graves are growing. Representatives of Belarus and Russia are deliberately not invited to events to commemorate prisoners of death camps in Germany. There is a public desecration of the state symbols of our country. This is a direct consequence of the attempts to revise the results of World War II. Therefore, we should step up our work to protect the historical truth," Vladimir Andreichenko said.
He drew attention to the upcoming important events: the nationwide event "Belarus Remembers. We Remember Everyone" in May and the international parliamentary conference "Historical Memory: The Great Victory Won by the Unity" in June. "MPs need to take an active part in the preparation and conduct of these events," the speaker said.
"We need to send a clear message to the world community: there will be no revision of history, glorification of the Nazism, their accomplices, justification of extremism and revanchism in Belarus," Vladimir Andreichenko emphasized.
This is our principled, tough position. We will preserve the spiritual core that binds the generations of the Belarusian people together, in the name of the future of Belarus and its citizens, the speaker added.
