Greetings on 100th anniversary of October Revolution

    Dear compatriots,

    Please accept my best greetings on the 100th anniversary of the October Revolution.

    There are milestones and events in the world history which have a strong impact on the fates of the nations and determine their further development.

    In October 1917, a country with a conceptually new pattern of government proclaiming the right of countries to self-determination emerged in the political map of the world.

    Social and economic principles shaped in the period of the Soviet Union formed the basis for the development of the industrial, scientific, agricultural, and social potential of the modern Belarusian state.

    Today we are living in a sovereign independent country. Using our skills and talents, we are building a strong and stable state which prioritizes its people, true patriots of their Homeland.

    I wish you strong health, peace and every success at work for the benefit of the native country.

    Aleksandr Lukashenko
