Condolences to the people of the United States of America

    Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko has offered condolences to the people of the United States of America over the tragedy in Uvalde, Texas.

    “It was with deep pain that Belarus learned the news about the numerous victims, the absolute majority of whom were children, of the ruthless massacre at the elementary school in Uvalde, Texas.

    It is an irreparable loss for parents, relatives and friends.

    Such terrible tragedies happen, among other things, because of the lack of proper control over the use of firearms combined with propaganda, especially in social media, of extremism, terrorism, as well as other destructive content that creates psychological pressure on the fragile mind of the younger generation.

    Today, the entire international community needs to join forces to combat these challenges, since they do not have state borders.

    On behalf of all Belarusians and on my own behalf, I offer sincere condolences and words of support to the families of the victims and all the people of the United States of America, and I wish a speedy recovery to the wounded,” the message of condolences reads.
