Lukashenko: Belarus has stood serious test for national unity
Belarus has stood a serious test for national unity, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at the Big Conversation with the President, a meeting with the public, experts and media community in the format of a big press conference in Minsk on 9 August, BelTA has learned.

"We have stood a serious test for national unity. We know that we have everything to pass this period in our newest history with dignity. We have people who are educated, thinking critically, committed to the interests of sovereign Belarus. There is a general understanding that in terms of national interests we are all looking in the same direction - the state one," the Belarusian leader said.

Aleksandr Lukashenko noted that the year of 2021 was declared the Year of People's Unity because Belarusians were able to keep the country intact in the fight for their historical choice and for their future. The president stressed that this would not have been possible without the consolidation of society in the desire to ensure peace in their native land.

The Belarusian People's Congress was another example of the unity of Belarusians, according to the head of state. The congress adopted a program of social and economic development of the country for the next five years.

The Constitutional Commission has completed the first stage of its work. It received a huge number of proposals to improve the Basic Law. “I would like to note that many people insisted on changes. Everyone perceived the amendments to the Constitution as the first, most important and main step towards these changes. The changes based on law. Everything else would have been chaos and lawlessness," the head of state noted.
