Lukashenko: Justice is a priority, people cannot be hurt

MINSK, 17 November (BelTA) – The principle of justice plays a crucial role in policy making, it is inadmissible to hurt people, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said at the press conference for the Russian regional mass media on 17 November, BelTA has learned.

“Some people say that Belarusians are patriots. They want to know how we nurture patriotism. We do not do anything special. People will always be the patriots of their country if they know that it is their land, and that they will be happy, that their children will live in this country,” the head of state noted.

“A just society is needed for it,” Alexander Lukashenko stressed. “I will not say that we have already created it. But we are doing our best for it. Justice is the main thing. People cannot be hurt. If a person is dissatisfied with the government and the state of affairs in the country, he will never be a patriot. He has nothing to protect and will lose nothing. This is the essence of this patriotism.”
