Kochanova: Revanchists are resurging, fighting with history

MINSK, 15 February (BelTA) – Revanchists are raising their heads again. They are fiercely fighting with the past, banning the celebration of Victory Day and demolishing monuments, Chair of the Council of the Republic of the National Assembly of Belarus Natalya Kochanova said at the first meeting of the parliament speakers of the countries from the Group of Friends of Neutrality. The participants of the video conference meeting discussed the role of parliaments in strengthening peace and dialogue, BelTA has learned.

According to Natalya Kochanova, traitors are glorified without shame or remorse, while real heroes who gave their all for freedom and independence are denigrated and memory holed.

“Belarus has repeatedly been at the epicenter of devastating wars that were started by others and against our will. It suffered colossal irreparable losses, and was virtually burned to the ground. Our people suffered tremendously, therefore they know the price of peace like no one else,” said Natalya Kochanova.

The speaker emphasized that true peacefulness and hard work are viewed as some of the fundamental principles of Belarusian society and as an important condition for the progressive development of the state.

“The Republic of Belarus is a truly peace-loving state. We pursue a policy of good neighborliness, we do not threaten anyone and never will. It is symbolic that our country declared 2021 the Year of National Unity, 2022 the Year of Historical Memory, 2023 the Year Peace and Creation,” Natalya Kochanova added.
