Independence Day named symbol of free and peaceful life in Belarus

MINSK, 2 July (BelTA) – Independence Day has become the symbol of a free and peaceful life, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said at a function held on 2 July to mark the country’s national holiday, BelTA informs.

“We are celebrating Independence Day, the day that has become the symbol of our free and peaceful life. Belarusians were unanimous in their choice when over 20 years ago they chose 3 July, the day of the liberation of Minsk Hero City from the Nazis, as the country’s main national holiday,” the head of state said.

During the Great Patriotic War, in 1944, the battle to liberate the capital of Belarus turned decisive in the fate of the country’s people, Alexander Lukashenko said.
