The war that entered our house in disorder and took every third of Belarus … Years later, especially the mercenary of the plague of Nazism As he finds followers among soldiers, traitors and criminals and approaches our borders, the bitterness and anger do not subside.”

He noted that in every corner of Belarus there is a history of his own Khatyn. “It hurts to realize how many new lives are not born, how many children are immature, how many destinies are interrupted by crazy ideas, blind hatred and bloody cruelty,” said the President.
“Belarusians had and still have one answer – the spirit of nationwide resistance,” Lukashenka said of followers of Nazism ideas. The duty of the living to the martyrs is to reveal the perpetrators of the mass genocide, to keep the memory of these terrible events alive and to prevent any more trouble in our holy land.
Khatyn is a Belarusian village located 54 kilometers northwest of Minsk, which was burned by the fascist invaders on March 22, 1943, along with its inhabitants.
