MINSK, 4 October (BelTA) – Consolidation of the society is a decisive factor of sustainable development of the country amid rising hybrid aggression. Chairman of the House of Representatives of the National Assembly of Belarus Vladimir Andreichenko made the statement as the sixth session of the seventh-convocation House of Representatives opened on 4 October, BelTA has learned.
The speaker said: “Consolidation of the society is a decisive factor of sustainable development of the country amid rising hybrid aggression launched by the countries aspiring for world domination. The countries view Belarus as a tool for implementing their geopolitical strategy or as an unwanted economic competitor.”
In his words, provocations at the Belarusian border have been added to torrents of lies and economic blackmail. “Facts of shocking treatment of migrants by law enforcement and security agencies of neighboring countries vividly demonstrate what is truly behind the rhetoric in favor of democracy and human rights. But such a tactic will not succeed. Transition to explicit terrorism is a desperate measure, which indicates the population does not support the protest movement. Belarusians’ response to the murder of a KGB officer confirms it,” the MP said.
But despite harsh external pressure the social and political situation in Belarus remains calm. “A broad nationwide dialogue continues. External borders of the state are securely protected,” he added.
