Lukashenko: Belarus is ready to do everything necessary for peace in Ukraine

MINSK, 7 May (BelTA) – Belarus is ready to do everything necessary for peace in Ukraine. Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko made the statement at the solemn meeting held on 7 May and dedicated to the 70th anniversary of the Soviet nation’s victory in the Great Patriotic War, BelTA has learned.

“Belarus has already done a lot for the sake of re-establishing peace in Ukraine. And we are ready to do more than that. We are ready to do everything necessary to stop the war. If we, Slavonic people, fail to come to terms, fail to decide what we should do, no one else will be able to help us,” stated Alexander Lukashenko.

Lukashenko: Belarus is ready to do everything necessary for peace in Ukraine“Once again Europe smells ashes 70 years after World War Two ended. And the most dreadful thing, something the victors and millions of those killed and burnt in Nazi death camps could not have foreseen, is that we, their descendants, will shoot at each other, that a brother will try to destroy a brother! But it has happened, it happened in the land where blood of the victors was shed in abundance. It is a terrible ‘gift’ for the fallen and the live ones! A terrible pain for the war veterans that live today!” stated Alexander Lukashenko.

Lukashenko: Belarus is ready to do everything necessary for peace in UkraineAccording to the President, thousand years of history have fused together the three brotherly nations — Belarusians, Russians, and Ukrainians — to the end of time. “We feel pain over the tragic events happening to our brothers,” stressed the Belarusian leader.

Speaking about Victory Day, Alexander Lukashenko remarked that parades and other festivities are good and war veterans appreciate them. “But when all’s said and done, we are bad heirs of those, who won that war. We didn’t save, didn’t hold on to the country they protected. Moreover, we started an unforgivable war in the Slavonic land. The sooner we understand it and do everything necessary to stop the war and repent while war veterans and war witnesses are still alive, the better it will be for our generation,” said the President.
