Belarus commemorates Victory Day


On May 9, 2024, a solemn event in honor of Victory Day was held in Victory Square in the hero city of Minsk, the capital of Belarus, under the leadership of President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko.

Victory Day is a holiday that commemorates the Soviet Union’s victory over Nazi Germany in 1945. It was first inaugurated in the 15 republics of the Soviet Union following the signing of the German Instrument of Surrender late in the evening on 8 May 1945 (9 May Moscow Time).

The Soviet government announced the victory early on 9 May after the signing ceremony in Berlin.

Less than eighty years ago the bloody tornado of the most terrible war in history was stopped by the sacrificial deeds of Soviet people. This fact is forever secured in the ruins of the Reichstag and the instrument of unconditional capitulation of fascist Germany.

The German war machine fell apart after encountering the unprecedented heroism and valor of our fathers, grandfathers, and great-grandfathers. The Great Victory was forged on the frontlines and the home front for four long years. Both elderly people and kids rose to fight the enemy.

By spending millions of lives of its sons and daughters in exchange for freedom, our great Motherland – the Soviet Union – saved humanity from enslavement and some nations from full extinction back then.

Today we take pride in our forefathers and veterans, who won the war. We praise their heroic deeds.

The Great Victory is the central and key moment in the history of the revival and establishment of the Belarusian nation. Today its lessons allow taking a glimpse of the future if one remembers and knows the past.

While the zest for life and the creative energy of the generation of victors, who restored the country from ruins, set an example of how we should live and work.

Belarus needs peace. Tomorrow. In a year. Always. It is important for us to endure and stay out of conflicts. Time has chosen us. We have been chosen to preserve the independence of our land and everything created by many generations before us. Everything we jointly take pride in and admire.

With this in mind we develop the economy, reinforce defense, and raise young citizens as patriots. We keep peace and wellbeing in the native land as the ancestors willed it.

The Great Victory they secured inspires us with the belief that Belarusians are capable of overcoming everything and persevering.

Honor and glory to the victorious warriors! Honor and glory to our dear veterans! Eternal remembrance to those, who fell on battlefields and perished in fascist prisons and concentration camps.

Alexander Lukashenko drew attention to the fact that for Belarusians 2024 is marked by a glorious anniversary, “the 80th anniversary of the liberation of the republic from the Nazi invaders. This special date is a good occasion to remind the whole world about resilience in the face of common threats, readiness and ability to defend every inch of the native land, to preserve and defend the heritage of the nation’s feat”, the President noted.

President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko wished strong health, long years, and prosperity to our esteemed veterans and happiness, peace, and wellbeing to every Belarusian family.
