Minister: Disrespect to historical memory erodes the state

MINSK, 2 May (BelTA) – Disrespect for historical memory leads to the destruction of the state as a whole, Belarusian Education Minister Andrei Ivanets told the media ahead of the 3rd Belarusian-Russian patriotic forum at the Belarusian State Medical University held on 2-3 May, BelTA has learned.

According to him, the preservation of historical memory is especially important today, as the generation of winners is passing away and a special responsibility lies on the descendants.

“We see what the failure to preserve historical memory can lead to. In fact, it is the destruction of the state as a whole. Our country has done everything necessary for everyone to be proud of our country's past and for us to honor the feat of the Soviet people,” Andrei Ivanets said.

According to the minister, in the year of the 80th anniversary of Belarus' liberation from the Nazis special attention is paid to the education of the youth. He praised the fruitful interaction between Belarus and the Russian Federation within the Union State.

“It has become a tradition to hold patriotic forums as the current one which has gathered students from the Russian Federation and Belarusian universities. We have a constant exchange of delegations and school students visiting memorial sites, places of military glory and preservation of historical justice,” the minister said.
