Lukashenko calls for unity to avoid nuclear apocalypse, WW3
All the people should unite in order to prevent World War Three and a nuclear apocalypse. Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko made the statement during the ceremony held on 9 May to lay wreaths and flowers at the Victory Monument as part of the patriotic campaign “Belarus remembers!”, BelTA has learned.

The head of state stressed that the West is driven by material gains and rejects dialogue and cooperation. In these conditions the voice of everyone, who speaks up to defend peace, who desires cooperation, and shares ideals of justice and global equality, has never been more important. “But we don’t hear these voices, unfortunately,” the president pointed out. “We know how such silence ended last century. Today they want to once again push us into the same abyss.”

“We should do everything to prevent World War Three. Otherwise, a nuclear apocalypse will be unavoidable. All of us have to unite for this purpose,” the president stated.

In the course of its history humanity has already managed to get united once against a universal evil and this unity led to victory, the head of state recalled. “Back then we crushed fascism because we stood together: Russians and Belarusians, Ukrainians and Kazakhs, Lithuanians and Uzbeks, Moldovans and Tajiks. All the peoples of the large Soviet country. Tens of other nations fought with us against Hitler’s horde. Including nations of Europe and the United States of America,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.
