The events of September 17, 1939, the Belarusian leader stated, laid “a solid foundation for the achievements and successes of modern Belarus and predetermined its future path of development.” The unity of the people of this country of ten million inhabitants, he noted, is based on “loyalty to the memory of their ancestors, the rich cultural heritage, perseverance and hard work.”

Addressing the citizens of the country, the President of Belarus wished everyone good health, happiness and prosperity. “May peace and harmony reign in every family, and may unity and patriotism always be reliable support for the strengthening of the Homeland,” says the congratulatory message.
