I hope that the young generation will build on the achievements of modern
Belarus, President Alexander Lukashenko said during a New Year charity event
held in the Palace of the Republic on 28 December as part of the Our Children
charity campaign.“I
know that you are smart and observant people, and you know that not all your
peers on Earth can attend such parties with the participation of the president,
New Year celebrations at school, etc. There are many places on our planet where
children are starving. I am saying this because you need to remember. If we
remember it we will value our past and present, we will create a better future.
It is very important,” Alexander Lukashenko said. “We want you to be proud of
your Motherland, we want you to protect it, to multiply the achievements of the
current generation of Belarusians. This is my biggest dream, and I think you
will make it come true.”The head of
state said that before this New Year party he recalled his childhood years. “My
childhood was happy just like yours. We realized how many problems and
challenges children had faced back then when we became older. There were many
challenges, people worked hard. But you and us have one common thing: we have
been waiting for this holiday and presents from Father Frost very much,” the
president said.Of course, he said that
modern kids get different presents. “However, they say that attention is as
important as presents. And today adults try to give presents to you, especially
on New Year’s Eve. The time has changed today, and presents have changed. Now we
have toys that help children develop. And we are proud of the fact that we
managed to create such conditions for our children when they can have wonderful
toys,” Alexander Lukashenko said.According to the head of state, every child is the best child for
parents, and Belarusian children are the best children for him as president.
“You are my children, and I am responsible for you. And I am proud of it,” the
president stressed.Alexander Lukashenko
said that today children use various gadgets, and it is normal for modern
people. He advised children to spend less time in front of their computers
because there are many good things outside. “Then you will become more beautiful
and modern. You will not lose your identity. You should share your emotions with
other people. Computers cannot give all that to you,” the head of state
said.The president stressed that happy
eyes and smiles of children are the best present for adults. “This is why we
live and work. We believe that the time will come when you will also be happy to
see happy eyes of your children,” Alexander Lukashenko concluded.The head of state wished the children a Happy
New Year and expressed hope that they will preserve the faith in kindness, clean
souls and sincere attitude to all people. He hopes that all their dreams will
come true.The New Year party is the
central even of Our children charity campaign. The event has brought together
over 2,300 children aged from 8 to 14 years from all regions of Belarus. These
include orphans and children from foster families, children of refugees,
students of cadet schools, winners of international, national, and regional
academic excellence competitions, creative contests, sports competitions, and
other kids.After the New Year show the
