Lukashenko: Words ‘friendly nations’ mean a lot for Belarusians

MINSK, 2 July (BelTA) - The words “friendly nations” mean a lot for Belarusians, President Alexander Lukashenko said at a function held on 2 July to mark the country’s national holiday, BelTA informs.

Speaking about the events of the Great Patriotic War, the president stressed that the Belarusian people, in unity with other peoples, managed not only to survive but to win and show an example of the great power of the unity and cohesion of nations. “They performed the Great Feat and continued to perform it throughout the difficult postwar period. Belarus was restored from ruins and ashes by people from all over the Soviet Union who came to live and work here. Many of them started families here, built houses and found a second homeland. They put down roots of a new postwar generation,” the head of state said.

“All this has truly bound our people with the nations of the Soviet Union. This is why ‘friendly nations’ are not mere words or a metaphor for the Belarusians. This Slavic unity will never be broken or defeated by anyone!” Alexander Lukashenko said.
