Belarusian leader Alexander Lukashenko strongly condemned the closure of churches during the spread of the coronavirus. He noted that the church is an important assistant in protecting the healthy spirit of the people and that it is now extremely important to be spiritually strong.
It is reported by “MFN”, with reference at the press service of the President of Belarus.
“I oppose those who prevent people from going to the temples. Such a policy is not for us. You know my position: we go through such viruses every year and always win, ”said Lukashenko.
He strongly condemned the behavior of leaders and citizens of neighboring countries, where in our time certain restrictions are placed on the activities of churches. Lukashenko called this behavior a mass psychosis and said it was wrong to flee the temples at such a time.
“With the advent of this psychosis, and it is mainly a psychosis, and not just a disease, everyone rushed not to the temples, but from the temples. It is sad. I do not impose my position, act as you see fit and in accordance with the circumstances, but think carefully with your head, ”he summarizes.
Recall, as previously reported, the situation is alarming – Medvedev urged Putin to review the quarantine measures.
