Somebody in Russia “is tempting” to privatize the victory in the World War II, as Aleksandr Lukashenko, the President of Belarus, stated during his visit to the Brest Fortress on May 2, the President’s website reports.

This is how he commented on the information that appeared in Russian media, which says that “Belarus is allegedly conducting historic separatism”.

“Somebody in Russia, which is surprising, is tempting to privatize this victory. As others did not participate in the war – Belarusians, Ukrainians, Georgians, Armenians, Tajiks, Turkmen…The entire Soviet Union was fighting. Not hundreds and not thousands, hundreds of thousands people died. We have broken and lost every third. The whole Belarus is a monument,” Lukashenko stated.

According to him, “to share the victory is to grist to the mill of our opponents and adversaries”.

“They are glad we started this division. And you know where this division started. Therefore, I treat such statements, that someone won alone, extremely negatively,” the President added.

He also stated that the “Soviet people won and there should not be any privatization”.
