MINSK, 22 April (BelTA) – The Belarusian parliament has passed a statement on the occasion of the forthcoming 75th anniversary of the Great Victory. The statement was adopted at a session of the Council of the Republic on 22 April, BelTA has learned.

Chair of the Council of the Republic Natalya Kochanova expressed confidence that this statement will emphasize the importance of the Great Victory for Belarusian people and will remind everyone about the price paid for peace. The document is believed to help thwart attempts to distort the truth about the Great Patriotic War.

Earlier the statement had been discussed by the House of Representatives. A reminder, the document reads that a moral duty of today's and future generations is to preserve the truth about the Victory in the Great Patriotic War and never to forget those who sacrificed their lives for it.

The contribution of the Belarusian people to the Great Victory has been immortalized. “Belarusians fought shoulder to shoulder with other nations of the Soviet Union on the front lines of the Great Patriotic War,” the statement reads. It points out that the Belarusian partisan movement became a unique example of truly popular resistance, courage and dedication.
