MINSK, 7 May (BelTA) - For Belarusians, the truth and the memory of the war are timeless and transcend borders, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at a solemn meeting on the occasion of Victory Day in Minsk on 7 May, BelTA has learned.

"There are many bright pages in our history, of which we are justifiably proud. Not all of them have retained their importance to this day. Many, having lost their former meanings, were simply forgotten. However, there are the dates and events that carry the essence and truth of life. They are timeless, passed down through generations with mother's milk, protect us against mistakes and help build the future. For Belarusians, the Victory of the Soviet people in the Great Patriotic War was such an event," Aleksandr Lukashenko stressed.

The president noted that this is the reason why the updated Constitution enshrines the thesis that "the state shall preserve the historical truth and the memory of the heroic feat of the Belarusian people during the Great Patriotic War.”

"For us, Belarusians, the truth and the memory of the war are timeless and transcend borders," the head of state said. “We remember our anti-fascist friends, the heroes of the Normandie-Niemen regiment, the encounter at the Elbe and other examples of joint fight against the enemy. We share this pride with all those who stood together with us against fascism and who still take pride."
