Aleksandr Lukashenko sends professional day greetings to Special Operations Forces

    Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko has sent greetings to active and retired personnel of the Special Operations Forces of the Belarusian Armed Forces as they mark their professional holiday - the Day of Paratroopers and Special Operations Forces.

    “In the most difficult conditions - during the Great Patriotic War and in modern local conflicts - paratroopers successfully accomplished complex tasks that were difficult for other troops to fulfill. They demonstrated outstanding combat skills, incredible fortitude, fearlessness and courage,” the statement reads.

    The Special Operations Forces carefully preserve and continue glorious traditions of older generations and constantly level up their combat skills. They reliably protect the interests of the state, the security and peace of citizens. The President urged them to keep it up.

    “I am convinced that you are the best of the best, the elite of the army and an example for young people. I am sure that for each of you service in the Armed Forces is not just a profession, but the purpose and meaning of your whole life,” the Belarusian leader added.

    In his congratulatory message, the head of state gave due credit to veteran servicemen for their selfless devotion to the Motherland and the paratrooper brotherhood and for teaching the younger generation.

    Aleksandr Lukashenko thanked the personnel and veterans of the Special Operations Forces for their service and wished them good health, happiness, well-being and success in military work for the benefit of the Fatherland.
