President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko said he does not intend to cancel the military parade in honor of the 75th anniversary of the Victory, as the event has deep ideological and emotional significance. He stated this at a meeting on May 3, BelTA reported.

"I must say that we cannot cancel the parade. We simply cannot. I thought about it for a long time. Of course, this is an emotional, deeply ideological thing. We must remember that those people (participants in the war, - ed.) were dying, maybe from viruses, other diseases. But they didn’t feel it and didn’t think about it. And they died for us, no matter how pathetic it may sound. And think what people will say. Maybe not right away, in a day, two in after that - they’ll say that we were scared,” Lukashenko said.

At the same time, the Belarusian leader has warned the organizers that if this proposal is accepted, then "no one should be dragged to this event."

People don’t want, they are afraid, they are taking care of their health - we will understand it. There are enough people who want it today - thousands and thousands of people want this event to be held,” said Lukashenko.

I am very worried that people will not approve if we, scared, scatter by holes. And in general, Belarus is a living monument of that war. And I think that representatives of all states could be present on this day,” he added.

In general, the president expressed confidence that the parade is not the most dangerous event from the point of view of epidemiologists and virologists.

Because it will be organized as expected. We will talk about this later. Maybe from the rostrum of this parade,” Lukashenko said.

The day before, the World Health Organization stated that in Belarus the pace of the spread of coronavirus is one of the highest in Europe.
