MINSK, 5 May (BelTA) – Peace is the greatest non-negotiable value for Belarusians. Prime Minister of Belarus Roman Golovchenko made the statement during the solemn assembly held in the Palace of the Republic ahead of Victory Day, BelTA has learned.

According to Roman Golovchenko, Belarus and Russia are connected by special ties. The Belarusian-Russian regional military force represents a reliable guarantee of the security of the Union State of Belarus and Russia. “The Soviet writer Mikhail Sholokhov said: ‘You cannot take away peace from those, who have wielded weapons and whose fevered lips have dried tears on cheeks of orphaned children, whose eyes have seen and will always remember horrors of the past war.' Peace is the greatest value for Belarus and cannot be an object for bargaining. Our nation suffered greatly to secure the Victory in the Great Patriotic War and will never threaten anyone. But our nation will always protect its freedom and independence,” the prime minister stressed.

The head of government noted that lessons of the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945 had taught Belarusians how to preserve the fragile peace, how to fight for it and counteract those, who threaten this peace. “We see that the planet has not become calmer. NATO is building up its military presence along our western borders. An armed conflict is in full blaze along the southern borders and dirty provocations are being staged in a bid to pull Belarus into this conflict. And I would like to ask those, who are trying to portray Belarus almost like a war instigator: hasn't Belarus been ringing bells on all international platforms for the past decades and calling on all Europeans to sit down at the negotiating table and work out a new security system for the common European home? They didn't hear us or didn't want to hear us,” the official said.
