Belarusians encouraged to safeguard purity of native tongue

Wednesday, 11 January 2023

It is necessary to safeguard the purity of the native language and keep foreign traditions out of one's home. Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko made the statement during the ceremony held on 10 January to present Spiritual Revival awards, special prizes for people of culture and art, and the special prize Belarusian Sport Olympus, BelTA has learned.

Aleksandr Lukashenko said: “It is necessary to remember that the future of our kids depends on how we safeguard the purity of the native tongue, on what holidays and symbols we allow to enter our home. If we want them to live freely and independently in our land the way we do, we should first and foremost learn how to differentiate native traditions from foreign ones.”

“This is why the annual ceremony to award laureates of the year prizes is primarily a token of recognition of all those who work in the humanitarian and cultural field, those who preserve our spiritual origins. Without an exaggeration, you play a leading role in matters of ensuring national security of the Republic of Belarus,” the head of state stated.
