President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko stated that the may 9 parade in honor of victory Day in the country will not be cancelled because of the pandemic of coronavirus, reports the Chronicle.info with reference to RBC.
According to him, is an emotional, deeply ideological thing.
“I have to say that we can’t cancel the parade. I just can’t. I’ve thought about it. Of course it’s emotional, deep ideological thing. We must remember that those people (the participants of the war — ed.) was dying, maybe from viruses, and other illnesses. But they did not feel at times and never thought about it. And they died for us, no matter how pretentious it sounded. Think about what people will say. Maybe not immediately, after a day or two after that, say that I was scared,” — said Lukashenko.
However, he warned the organizers that in the case of the parade “nobody to drag to the event is not necessary.”
“I don’t want people afraid, protect health — we understand this. Just wanting thousands and thousands of people want this event,” — said the President of Belarus.
