Lukashenko: the war to destroy Slavic ethnos has not ended

The war to destroy the Slavic ethnos, culture and peoples has not ended – as stated by Aleksandr Lukashenko during his speech at a solemn meeting in the Palace of the Republic


The President noted that during the Great Patriotic War, Belarusians defended not only their lives, but also the memory of past generations, which would have been simply erased from world history, “It was a war to destroy the Slavic ethnos, culture and entire nations. Today we more and more often say that this war has not ended. It has not ended, because we still have not reburied the last dead soldier and the last civilian who was brutally killed. It has not ended, because not all those involved in the monstrous facts of the genocide of the Belarusian people have been brought to justice. It has not ended, because again, as at the front, we are defending our historical memory.”

The Belarusian Head of State stressed that the most dangerous enemy in this primarily ideological war is not external enemy, “The origins of Western revanchism are obvious. Those who continue the work of their grandfathers and great-grandfathers, fighting with monuments to Soviet soldiers-liberators, are predictable and understandable. Betrayal and indifference of one’s own people is the most terrible. On such a day I don’t want to talk about our neighbours, who elevated murderers and maniacs to the rank of national heroes. It is unpleasant to remember those who sympathise with them here and in Russia. But, unfortunately, the case of the policemen and other accomplices of the Nazi murderers continues to live in books, articles, other creative and political manifestos of contemporary neo-Nazis. You see and know everything.”

In this regard, Aleksandr Lukashenko first of all thanked the Belarusian people, “Our people look at the pitiful attempts of modern collaborators to rewrite the history of the Great Patriotic War and make, as it has always been in our history, the only right choice. I am proud of you – all who keep in their hearts the memory of the heroic generation that accomplished a feat, the greatness of which knows no bounds. I am proud of everyone who takes care of the monuments to soldiers and civilians, brings their children to them, who collects living memories and facts about the Great Patriotic War and our heroes, writes pictures, songs, books, makes films. I am grateful to everyone who is worthy of holding a blow in the information war for our historical memory. You are the true heirs of the winners!”
