MINSK, November 6. /TASS/. Belarusians have again demonstrated to the whole world their unity in the face of external challenges and their independent thinking at recent elections, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said on Friday at the inauguration ceremony.
"Our people demonstrated highest political culture at the election. We were not divided in the past, we are not in the present. And I am absolutely confident that it will not happen in the future," Lukashenko said.
The Belarusian president said the bet on seizing power in the country by "color revolutions" is deemed to fail. "The elections have once again proved to different forces, including those outside the country, that betting on seizing power in Belarus by military means through ‘color revolutions’ and ‘Maidans’ is deemed to fail. This will never happen," Lukashenko stressed.
He noted that "there are still several politicians in the country who want to fan the flames of the internal turmoil." "It is typical that such radicals are refuted not only by the majority of the population but also by the very small number of people who do not support certain strategies of the authorities. It means that their ideology is refuted even by their supporters," Lukashenko said.
The Belarusian leader stressed that presidential election became "such a campaign that made us proud of ourselves and our people." "This is not my success, it’s a national victory, a victory of our people," he added.
