After Belta states, Alekhno expressed gratitude to the country, the people and personally Lukashenko.
In response, Lukashenko said that artists, journalists, painters, sculptors had a difficult year because they were hit by a flurry of attacks, and unfortunately, such as Ruslan, there were not many survivors.
& quot; Now I could tell you a few names, not only ours, but especially the great Russians, who stomped here in Belarus, asked for help from halls, concerts, spectators, received awards and cowardly with a tail between their legs (at best) fled, hid, ” Lukashenko said.
The Belarusian president added that he could not call such people artists and creative workers … “They are not even cowards.” They are traitors, “Lukashenko emphasized.
He added that Ruslan Alekhno was seen before, during and after the events, and he is not only talented but also remains a patriotic man.
