Belarusians remember common roots with Russia, Ukraine – President Lukashenko

Bishkek (AKIpress) - Lukashenko2 The Belarusians remember the common historical roots with Russia and Ukraine, BelTA cited Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko on 22 April.

According to the President, Belarus is a unique country. The eastern and western branches of Christianity (Orthodoxy and Catholicism) meet here. Belarusians, Russians, Ukrainians, Jews, Poles, Tatars and other nationalities live here. “Our uniqueness is in the fact that they have been living peacefully and friendly for many years, helping each other, preserving their language, culture and seeing themselves as part of a united body which name is the people of Belarus. Of course, not everyone and not always liked it. There were quite a few attempts to undermine the peace in Belarus. They all ended up as a failure,” the head of state said.

He reminded that there were attempts to blame Belarus for infringing the interests of the Poles or Catholics. “Later even our biggest enemies in Poland, for instance, were ashamed of these statements,” the Belarusian leader said. “Today we can hear even more surprising statements of Belarus trying to harass Russians and the Russian language. Of course, it is hard to make up such silliness.”

“Any talks about Russianness, Belarusianness, pro-Russianness and pro-Ukranianness are a step towards the same chaos. It seems someone wants it,” the Belarusian leader said. “We have always fought against Western pseudo-ideas from the NATO, others. I have always instructed the law enforcement bodies, the KGB to suppress any talks of the kind.”

According to Alexander Lukashenko, it is no wonder that different states rise from one spiritual and cultural root. “It is natural. Just remember: there was time when Great Britain built the world’s biggest empire and created a foundation for the birth of new nations and states with Anglo-Saxon roots,” the President noted.

“We, Belarusians, always remember the common historical roots with our Russia and our Ukraine,” Lukashenko stressed.
