Belarus today celebrates Independence Day. Congratulations to the leader of the country Alexander Lukashenko and the Belarusian people come from all over the globe. This was reported by the press service of the president.


According to published information, first of all, congratulations came from Russian President Vladimir Putin. The Russian leader noted that relations between Russia and Belarus continue to develop in a positive way, the countries are implementing many joint projects in the fields of foreign policy and defense, in trade, economic, humanitarian, scientific and technical and other fields. In addition, Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin and Chairman of the Federation Council Valentina Matvienko sent their congratulations to Lukashenko.

I am sure that together we will be able to further build up Russian-Belarusian relations in all areas, as well as constructive interaction within the Union State, the Eurasian Economic Union, the CSTO and the CIS. This undoubtedly meets the fundamental interests of the fraternal peoples of our countries.

- cites the press service of the Belarusian president the text of the message received from Moscow.

China also sent a congratulatory message to Minsk, which has recently developed trade and economic relations with Belarus. In his message, President Xi Jinping noted that the Republic of Belarus has recently achieved certain successes and Beijing will continue to support the path chosen by Minsk and provide comprehensive assistance.

In his message, US President Donald Trump noted that he remains "a strong supporter of the independence and sovereignty of Belarus" and hopes for continued cooperation "for the benefit of the two countries."

The head of the US State Department, Mike Pompeo, also congratulated Lukashenko on the holiday:

The United States strongly supports the continued commitment of the Belarusian people to democratic principles, including universal freedoms, civil liberties, and the rule of law. We urge the Government of Belarus to do everything possible to ensure that the upcoming elections are free and fair. (...)

- the State Department said in a statement.

But the Queen of Great Britain in her congratulatory message called the President of Belarus "Your Excellency."

With great pleasure I am sending you, Your Excellency, my warmest congratulations on the occasion of the national holiday of the Republic of Belarus and my best wishes to the Belarusian people at this difficult time for everyone

- said in a statement.

Also congratulations were sent by: Federal President of Germany Frank-Walter Steinmeier, President of France Emmanuel Macron, Federal President of Austria Alexander Van der Bellen, President of the Italian Republic Sergio Mattarella and many other world leaders.

President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky also sent his congratulations to Lukashenko, who expressed hope that Minsk would become “a reliable partner and neighbor” for Kiev.

In the modern world, for our states, whose peoples have always historically been linked by close socio-cultural and economic ties, the support and strengthening of good-neighborly and partnership relations are especially important. I look forward to continuing our fruitful dialogue, as well as strengthening practical cooperation at the interregional level in the interests of the peoples of our countries

- wrote Zelensky.

Congratulations keep coming.

      Somehow our ancestors did not know such a holiday and lived in peace and harmony conditional White Russia, Great Russia and Little Russia, and now, through the efforts of non-politicians, everyone celebrates some kind of independence. Independence from whom or what?

        Our ancestors lived in the USSR. There were the BSSR, the RSFSR and the USSR .
        This is what I remember!
        And what kind of Russia was there under the tsarist regime it doesn’t matter to me! And was there anyway,no one knows for sure about this.
        But today's Belarus is the best-preserved fragment of the USSR.
        Belarus has preserved the most of all former republics of the USSR Soviet system.
        And it saved all thanks to the independence of the oligarchic Putin's Russia.

          Only now it will be more accurate in this form:
          Quote: Smolin
          In such a state it is thanks to ... "oligarchic" Putin's Russia.

          But somehow, in the initial version, this thought doesn’t fight the constant worries of the AHL either about the insufficiently large discounts on gas, or at the expense of restrictions on the export of milk to Russia and so on and so forth.

          Well, yes, with scanty knowledge, it really doesn’t matter to you, because you don’t know stories, and you still flaunt it.
          And as for your joy from "... preserved in this state ..." I would like to know more about what has been preserved there by the forces of the local authorities than you are so unbridledly happy about. If something has survived there, it is thanks to "oligarchic Putin's Russia", which buys the notorious Belarusian shrimp, jamon and other exotic goods growing on "noble and not swampy" soils of Belarus and supplies natural resources to Belarus at bargain prices.

          According to any census in the Russian empire, the national composition of a great country is visible, and the three peoples go in one group as Great Russians. Little Russians and Belorussians. For example, the First General Census of the Russian Empire in 1897.

          Where would you go without "oligarchic Putin's Russia"? You can't live on one bulb. The intellectual base of Belarus is high, agriculture is at the level, the defense industry is working. Nobody takes that away from you. But what makes it all work? Is it only thanks to the efforts of the father and the Belarusians? what Question. Russia spoiled Ukraine and received a zero from the "grateful" "wide Ukrainians". Now Ukraine is slowly and surely sinking into the swamp. So think about it. Fools learn from their mistakes, smart from strangers. hi

          And it happened, Russia did it before everyone else, namely on June 12, even earlier than Ukraine, and Belarus is to blame. Strange logic, however.

        Eugene, recall the sequence of events of that time. Something seems to me that this is the first Russia to separate from the Slavic fraternal union. So, your phrase refers to the events of June 12 in Moscow, July 24 in Kiev, and then on July 27 in Minsk. Something like that was.

            And the agreement Belovezhsky is already a consequence of all previous events. And Boris Nikolaevich did not fall from heaven. Damn, at another 19 party conference, Gorbatom was told that he was engaged in garbage. And that freak had to show off in front of Europe and America. Dokrasilas, reptile. I crossed the border on the night of July 24, and reached Minsk on August 1, 1990. There was no information on the road at all. The events of June 12 brought great turmoil in us; Sumgayit Azerbaijanis of the 1988 model and Kazakhs of the 1989 model served. And wall to wall with sharpeners. The battalion of officers and warrant officers of 24 people consists of 15 Ukrainians, 4 Belarusians and 5 of us, Russians. Also the circus was still one. And political women make a helpless gesture, cannot say anything. It was probably easier in your Union? And the blame, Zhenya, lies with all of us, you cannot hide from her. How would you now, with the proclamation of a titular nation, you wouldn’t mess around. All this is muddy, there is a people that lives on the territory of the state, all must be equal.

          Did our grandfathers die in battles on the outskirts of Minsk so that some Lukashenko would tear our people apart in a few decades? Is it for the fact that he received more complete power in his "patrimony" shed our blood? For the interests of the appanage prince went to death?
          And what, Belarus on the day of the liberation of Minsk became an independent state? It is not written ambiguously: Independence Day of Belarus.
          And the day of liberation of Minsk is the day of liberation of Minsk. To overshadow it by putting on this date some mythical "day of independence of Belarus" - a betrayal of the memory of the soldiers who laid down their heads for the liberation of this city.

    although history does not tolerate the subjunctive mood, but if after the war there would have been a daredevil and
    would propose to Stalin to abolish all these fourteen Soviet republics and turn them into provinces
    Soviet Russia, having necessarily abolished both republics and autonomy within the then Soviet Russia and created only provinces there, Russia still existed within the borders of 1945. Of course, Stalin should have been explained that he is not eternal, and that his iron hand after his death from the grave
    The empire will not be able to keep in check. Along the way, not forgetting to recall that not all, and possibly not quite those
    he destroyed the enemies of the people and put them in camps. But where will you find such a daredevil who would explain all this to Stalin, and even so that Stalin would understand and immediately begin to act, and not send the adviser to Siberia.
    The Red Soviet Empire was destroyed by internationalism and the notorious friendship of peoples. After Stalin
    liberals Khrushchev calls times the thaw. Although it was a real slush. But the seeds
    Gorbachevism and Yeltsinism were planted precisely then. Under Brezhnev, these seeds only lay
    in the soil of the power of the Central Committee of the CPSU, also fertilized by internationalism and the notorious friendship of peoples, and
    under Gorbachev and Yeltsin, those seeds sprouted instantly and it turned out that these were terrible weeds, which were then torn to pieces by the USSR Red Empire.

    A strange holiday. Belarus is dependent of course - this is the first, the second from whom does independence celebrate?

    My impression is that Lukashenko finally stood on a crooked path. Having adopted slogans from the nationalist agenda, he is more confidently leading his country along the path of building a typical national state. Will he and his followers keep within the bounds of decency or will everything slide into terry, cave nationalism over time?

    Judging by the rhetoric, he is practically following the path of the leaders of other former republics of the USSR - he begins to immensely highlight the titular nation. without any mention of other ethnic groups inhabiting the country. At the limit, after some time, non-titular ethnic groups, under the threat of some kind of punishment, will be required to recognize a new reality in which Belarusians are "a leading and guiding force", or "a suitcase, a station, ...", they say, " we did not invite you to our place. " There are enough examples of such a development of the situation in the former USSR.

    I would be glad to make a mistake, but Belarus is not the first on this path.

    Grigorych, of course, sometimes surprises, to put it mildly ... But I always respected the kind, wise Belarusian people. So, happy holiday, dear Belarusians! Happiness, tranquility and prosperity. As we quarrel, we will make peace. Tea, we are not strangers to you.

    it was not in vain that a certain Pompeo "congratulated" and later hinted that Russia and Bellarusia would be "independent" from each other, this suggests that Jews and Britons with their criminals will continue to dig under the persecution of Belarusians and Russians; hope for the mexican border and the states of texas and california will be mexican
