Lukashenko: Integrity and justice are still at the heart of my politics

GRODNO, 14 November (BelTA) – Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko declared that he is not going to engage in a political play with anyone, as this leads to disintegration and collapse of the state. The President made this statement on 14 November as he heard out a report of the Grodno Oblast Governor on the region’s social and economic development prospects, BelTA has learned.

“I am not going to woo anyone, as this leads to the collapse and disintegration of the state. As soon as we start dividing our land on the basis of ethnicity, you know what will happen. The example is in the south. This is your land and you should do your best to make it better and more beautiful. To make it happen, you need to invest your brains and your work,” Alexander Lukashenko said.

According to the President, there is a lot of talk that goes like “it is not so good here”. Some say that it is totally bad, or that life in Poland is so much better. “I am not to tell you how they live in Poland. You know it for yourselves, and if you still live here, it means you have made the right choice. The grass is always greener on the other side,” the head of state assured. In his words, Poland and other countries have their eyes firmly set on Belarus, in particular, Grodno Oblast, one of the gems of the country. According to Alexander Lukashenko, there is no city like Grodno in the entire world; no place is more beautiful than this region. “Everyone would say: look at Switzerland. I have been to Switzerland; however I would not want to live there. There are beautiful places, mountains there, however the country is overpopulated. We have the same beauty here. Nobody interferes with your lives here. I am saying this not because I want you to love your country. It is up to you. Of course, I would want you to love it as much as I do. However, keep in mind one thing, Russians, Ukrainians, Jews and Poles – this is your land and it is you belong here. There is no better place for your,” Alexander Lukashenko said.

“When some officials and other people from Poland tell me about Poles, I ask them right away: what Poles they mean? You should keep in mind that Poles living in Grodno are our Poles and this is their land.

The head of state emphasized that he had delivered on all the promises he made during all his election campaigns. “Integrity and justice that I promised to you is still at the heart of my politics,” Alexander Lukashenko said.
