    “We knew and appreciated Anatoly Borisovich [Kuznetsov] as a wonderful actor whose creative work helped promote noble humanistic and moral ideals in art and strengthened friendship between the fraternal nations. Blessed memory of Anatoly Borisovich Kuznetsov will forever remain the hearts of the Belarusians,” Aleksandr Lukashenko stressed.
