Lukashenko: we won’t allow Nazism to be revived as collective West’s weapon against Slavic world

This was stated today by Aleksandr Lukashenko during the wreath-laying ceremony at the Mound of Glory


He stressed that today, at this place of fateful battles, we remember all the battles that forged the Great Victory, “The pennants ‘For Courage and Fortitude during the Great Patriotic War’, which you see in front of you, were awarded to 27 settlements of Belarus. These are far from all the addresses of courage known to us. We’ll continue this work to perpetuate the memory of the heroic deeds and heroes of the Great Patriotic War.”

The President added that the time has come for young people to take over from the older generations and preserve the eternal flame of this memory, “For the sake of peace on earth. I see many young people here today, including young Belarusians and Russians who arrived in Minsk on the Memory Train. It is very important that you communicate, make friends, protect the honour and glory of the generation of winners together because it won’t be easy. Our enemies have been living with the idea of erasing the memory of the Great Victory for a long time, and it is very important for all of us to preserve it. Having stepped over all moral principles and moral barriers, nowadays they not only deny Khatyn, Babi Yar and the blockade of Leningrad, they are ready to consign the tragedy of their peoples to oblivion, to erase Buchenwald, Auschwitz, and Majdanek from history.”

Asking what we can oppose to this, the Head of State focused, “Only harsh and cruel truth of history. We must fight for this truth! None of us – neither Belarusians, nor Russians, nor Ukrainians – need a war. Nevertheless, we will not allow Nazism to be revived as a weapon of the collective West directed against the Slavic world. Let our Mound of Glory be a witness and keeper of this solemn promise.”
