The Belarusian authorities will not cancel the parade on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the Victory in world war II. About this today during the meeting, said the President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko, reports the press service of the President of Belarus.
“We can’t cancel the parade. I just can’t. I’ve thought about it. Of course it’s emotional, deep ideological thing. We must remember that those people died, maybe from viruses, and other illnesses. But they did not feel at times and never thought about it. And they died for us, no matter how pretentious it sounded. Think about what people will say. Maybe not immediately, after a day or two after that, say that I was scared,” – said Lukashenko.
He stressed that “no one to drag to the event is not necessary”, but believes that “thousands and thousands of people want this event took place”.
The President of Belarus noted that some of the Russian deputies and senators also expressed a desire to attend a parade in Minsk. “We are from our friends and brothers are not closing our doors,” – said Lukashenko.
He added that the parade “is not the most dangerous from the point of view of epidemiologists and virologists event.”
