Lukashenko: Generation of victors create powerful economic, cultural potential

MINSK, 9 May (BelTA) – The generation of the victors created a powerful economic and cultural potential. This became the basis for the further development of Belarus, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said during the flower ceremony at the Victory Memorial in Minsk as Belarus celebrated the 72nd anniversary of the Great Victory on 9 May, BelTA has learned.

“The Nazis turned our blossoming land into ruins. In order to raise from the ashes, Belarus had to fight yet another enormous battle, that time with the devastation and famine. Dedication and heroism of the people, the unity and fraternal assistance from the Soviet Union republics made the seemingly impossible task a reality. In a short period of time the country rebuilt factories, built new ones, set up agricultural enterprises, built schools, universities, libraries, theaters and museums. The generation of the victors created a powerful economic and cultural potential. This became the basis for the further development of our country,” Alexander Lukashenko said.

“We are happy that our dear war and labor veterans are among us today. We will never forget what you have done for the homeland. Your achievements have forever taken the most honorable place in the national history. You are an example for all the generations of the Belarusians. Nothing is worthier than a sacrificial feat in the name of liberty and independence,” Alexander Lukashenko said.
