MINSK, 11 June (BelTA) – The Belarusian Women's Union has called on all women's organizations of the world to speak up for fair treatment of the Belarusian nation, BelTA learned from the Belarusian Women's Union.
“It is with concern and outrage that the Belarusian Women's Union has been watching the incessant political and economic pressure on Belarus. There are attempts to get us and our families mired in economic crisis forcing Belarus to change its path of development for the benefit of someone else's geopolitical interests, in violation of international law,” the address reads.
“More than 25 years ago, we chose to build sovereign Belarus as a fair welfare state that prioritizes people's interests. This choice was once again supported by the majority of Belarusians in the 2020 presidential election,” the Belarusian Women's Union noted.
“We want the voices of Belarusian women to be heard. Our voices are the voices of our children and we are ready to fight for their future. Please, hear the voice of reason, the voice of conscience! You have families and kids too. We do not ask for mercy. We just want to live and work peacefully in our country, under our flag, by our laws,” the address stressed.
Any attempts to pressure Belarus will be unsuccessful, Chairwoman of the Belarusian Women's Union Yelena Bogdan believes. “This only binds us closer and makes us stronger. We will hold out! We have deserved, by our hard work, our history, our peaceful and open policy, the right for peace, respect and good relations with our neighbors. We are calling on all women's organizations of the world to speak up for fair treatment of the Belarusian nation. In the future, you might face what we are facing today,” she added.
