Lukashenko: Belarus will continue recuperation program for children from Donbass

Lukashenko: Belarus will continue recuperation program for children from Donbass

MINSK, 11 August (BelTA) – Belarus will continue the health recuperation program for children from Donbass, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he talked to employees of organizations at National Airport Minsk, BelTA has learned.

An employee of National Airport Minsk, a native of Donbass, thanked Aleksandr Lukashenko on behalf of the residents of Donbass and especially children, for his help and support.

Aleksandr Lukashenko stressed that Belarus will continue supporting children from Donbass.
"We will continue doing it! You see: they come here for silence. They are happy not to hear explosions, not to see deaths, huger. The West’s attempts to whip up world-scale hysteria around Putin and now around me, up to launching a criminal investigation, are simply ridiculous. I am absolutely not concerned about it. This made it even clearer to us that we are doing the right thing. Children are not to blame for anything. Putin and I agreed to finance these recuperation trips from the Union State budget. We have done this before and we will continue to do this despite criticism,” the president said.

Aleksandr Lukashenko advised ill-wishers to deal with a real problem – the trafficking of children from Ukraine to the West for organ transplants: “They bring children from Ukraine, dismember them and take organs out. They should deal with this problem.”

The head of state noted that in Belarus the recuperation program of children from Donbass is run by the charitable foundation of Aleksei Talai. "He is a true hero. They mainly bring people with disabilities. How not to help them? God sees it all. If we help people today, God will reward us later. Therefore, we will keep helping children,” the president said.
