MINSK, 2 April (BelTA) – People should be updated on the process of the constitutional reform, Chairman of the House of Representatives of the National Assembly Vladimir Andreichenko said at the opening of the fifth session of the lower chamber of Belarus' parliament of the seventh convocation on 2 April, BelTA has learned.

“There are some MPs on the Constitutional Commission. Of course, we should contribute to its work. It is also important to continue spreading awareness among Belarusians. People should be informed about the process of the constitutional reform, because they will make the final decision in a referendum,” Vladimir Andreichenko noted.

After amending the Constitution, we will have to update a considerable part of the legislation, Vladimir Andreichenko noted. “Our standing commissions should already get down to work with this in mind and formulate their proposals,” he stressed.

The 80th anniversary of the outbreak of the Great Patriotic War is drawing near. The victory in the war showed the world the uncrushable spirit of the Soviet people, Vladimir Andreichenko pointed out. “Unfortunately, today we have to thwart attempts to distort history and spread false information about the war and our past among younger generations. We cannot allow it,” he said. “Knowing history strengthens the society and national identity. Plans are in place to hold parliamentary hearings 'Territorial integrity and people's unity of Belarus. Historical and legal aspects of reunification of Western Belarus into the BSSR',” he added.

MPs will carefully study the processes that took place in the run-up to the Great Patriotic War and analyze how those events affect international security nowadays. “I believe that experts' reports will become a revelation for many people, especially the youth. After the hearings, we will design recommendations and materials for MPs that will lay the groundwork for awareness-building efforts and promotion of patriotism among young people, which is especially important in the Year of People's Unity,” Vladimir Andreichenko noted.
