Belarus hailed as established independent state

MINSK, 2 July (BelTA) – Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko has sent greetings to his compatriots as the country celebrates Independence Day, BelTA learned from the press service of the Belarusian leader.

“For every Belarusian this day carries a special meaning. Our more than 1,000-year history has been marked with constant struggle of people for their land, spiritual values and self-determination. Even after the sovereign Republic of Belarus emerged on the world map, the country has constantly had to defend the right to an independent path of development,” the message of greetings reads.

Aleksandr Lukashenko called it symbolic that the country’s main holiday is also the day when Belarus was liberated from Nazi invaders. “The Great Victory saved us from annihilation. We honor the feat of the generation of victors who overcame a formidable enemy and who rebuilt the country out of ruins," the head of state said.

“Today, the Republic of Belarus is an established independent state where every citizen can reach any heights in profession, art, sport, social and family life. We will continue to strengthen our sovereignty and build the future of the country on the principles of justice, equality and care for people,” the Belarusian leader noted.

The president also wished his compatriots strong health, well-being and peaceful sky over their heads.
