Lukashenko praises big role of creative people for Belarus

Lukashenko praises big role of creative people for Belarus

MINSK, 20 March (BelTA) – The role of creative people in the life of the country is very high and important, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said during the meeting with creative youth at the Belarusian State Youth Theater on 20 March, BelTA informs.

“Everything connected with art is always subjective, and creative people are so sensitive. Therefore, I am usually watching you from aside and do not make evaluations too quickly. But it does not mean that I do not want outstanding results from creative people. Your role in the life of the country is very high and responsible. Maybe, this role is even more important than you realize it,” Alexander Lukashenko remarked.

According to the president, the today’s event is unique as he does not have a chance to meet with creative people, especially in the format of an open conversation, very often. “It may seem that in this context the state pays less attention to culture and art in comparison with other sectors. This is not the case. A lot has been done for you to be able to create,” the head of state stressed.

Alexander Lukashenko emphasized that young people can demonstrate their skills and abilities in various fields. Presidential funds for the support of talented youth have been established. “Now it is up to you to create,” he said.

“Meetings with youth are very important for me. They give me an opportunity to see the future of our state. You will create it, improve and protect. Belarus’ future will be made of your aspirations, dreams and, I am sure, good deeds,” the president said. “It does not matter where you will show yourself, in literature, academic art, cinema, television, popular singing, dancing, because you will give positive emotions to people, enrich them emotionally, and, what is the main thing, shape the spiritual carcass of the nation.”

The head of state is convinced that this is a good and responsible path to lead the world by elevating souls with aesthetic beauty.
