“I welcome all of you today at Minsk Arena. I welcome all those who are watching the opening ceremony online. Belarus is hosting the CIS Games. Once again millions of fans around the world have their eyes on us. Just like they did four years ago when we hosted the 2nd European Games,” the head of state said.

Aleksandr Lukashenko emphasized that the flame of the European Games lit in Minsk has not gone out: “It burns with faith in the Olympic ideals, true justice and sports brotherhood. It unites true friends, loyal and reliable - people with iron character. It has brought us together. A wonderful atmosphere is reigning here. You create it with your emotions, openness, and friendliness. Thank you very much.”
