Lukashenko: The Soviet people made an outstanding contribution to the Great Victory

MINSK, 9 May (BelTA) – The Soviet people made an outstanding contribution to the Great Victory and this victory should not be divided, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said during a ceremony to lay flowers at the Victory Monument to mark the 73rd anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War, BelTA has learned.

“The Soviet people made an outstanding contribution to the Great Victory and this victory should not be divided today. This is similar to forgetting about it,” Alexander Lukashenko said.

The head of state noted that the Belarusians have always fought to prevent the history and especially the events of the Great Patriotic War from distortion. “We fought against such charlatans and did not think that we would have to face another challenge: the privatization of our Victory,” the president said.

He cited Russia’s Ambassador to Belarus Alexander Surikov’s words who said that “we won in that horrible war together. If not for the unity, we would still be on our knees.”
