Aleksandr Lukashenko sends Independence Day greetings to all Belarusians

    Dear compatriots,

    I cordially wish you Happy Independence Day.

    This holiday is by right one of the most important holidays for our people. It is the source of the biggest spiritual uplift and unity of those who cherish the glorious history of the Homeland and who believe in its noble future.

    In the post-war years Belarus restored its national economy from ruins and ashes in spite of big human losses, financial difficulties and deprivation. Within a historically short period of time Belarus secured an impressive breakthrough in its development fulfilling the dream of many generations about a sovereign and independent state.

    Our achievements rely on the courageous spirit, diligence and perseverance of the Belarusian nation.

    The main objective for us today is to stand tall and proud, to pass the historical baton which we received from the generation of victors and creators to our children and grandchildren, to maintain peace and accord in our native land.

    I sincerely wish you happiness, good health, every success and new professional achievements for the benefit of the Fatherland!

    Aleksandr Lukashenko
