KORELICHI, 7 May (BelTA) – It is important to strengthen the national security and preserve the memory of the Great Victory, State Secretary of the Security Council of the Republic of Belarus Aleksandr Volfovich told reporters during a trip to Korelichi District on 6 May, BelTA has learned.
Aleksandr Volfovich noted that many post-war decades on, we appreciate even more the invaluable role of the generation of victors in the fate of mankind, in saving entire nations from destruction. According to Aleksandr Volfovich, it is their names and glorious achievements that underpin the history of Belarus that does not tolerate betrayal and falsehood.
"Today, we have been working to establish new facts of Nazi crimes in the occupied Belarus during the war," Aleksandr Volfovich said. “Significant research work has shown that the scale of the tragedy of the Belarusian people may be greater than previously thought. We must remember everything that happened to make sure such events never happen again. The Constitution of the Republic of Belarus has been supplemented with a provision about memory - true memory, which is important for all Belarusians. The novelty concepts in terms of protection of the historical memory and traditional values of the Belarusian people have also been included in the updated National Security Concept."
Aleksandr Volfovich said that the world has not become calmer today. "The West has little patience with the undesirable and the weak and cynically uses the measures of economic pressure, political blackmail, lies and slander. They nurture neo-Nazi ideology and ‘fifth columns' in different regions. The loss of mutual trust between global players, the lack of willingness to compromise, and the return to the bloc confrontation have, in fact, put the world on the brink of a new war,” Aleksandr Volfovich said. “Being located at the European crossroads, our country, which knows well the value of peace, has also faced these challenges. Therefore, Belarus is taking all necessary measures to strengthen the national security."
