Details: Lukashenko said that “many generations of Belarusians and Ukrainians have lived in harmony and respect for centuries”, trading, creating families and raising children, “courageously fighting fascism together, rebuilding a common state in the first post-war five-year plans”.
Lukashenko added that these peoples “share character traits: they are hardworking, diligent, respectful of elders and their traditions, and original culture”.
Quote: “Having gained independence more than three decades ago, both countries have chosen independent paths of development, building a future for which we must create safe opportunities for the dignified coexistence of the entire region.
We must use the preciousness of our neighbourliness to end the confrontation. The Belarusian side is ready to do everything necessary for this and even more. I believe that we can do it.”
Details: Lukashenko wished all the people of Ukraine to “very soon” reach peace on Ukrainian land that is priceless and necessary for all people of good will.
