Statement of Alexander Lukashenko at the 60th session of the UN (September 15, 2005)
Discours d'Alexandre Lukashenko à la 60e session de l'ONU (15 septembre 2005)

Mr. President, 
Ladies and Gentlemen, 

To have an honest look at today’s world is the reason why state leaders have convened here at the United Nations. Together we must gain the understanding of the main thing: do we lead our countries and the mankind along the right path? We should answer this question for ourselves and our nations. Without that we have no chance to get out of the deadlock that we are in.

Fifteen years have passed since the break-up of my country, the USSR. That event dramatically changed the world order. The Soviet Union, despite all mistakes and blunders of its leaders, was the source of hope and support for many states and peoples. The Soviet Union provided for the balance of the global system.

Today the world is unipolar with all the consequences stemming from this.

The once prosperous Yugoslavia was devastated and disappeared from the map of Europe.

The long-suffering Afghanistan became a hotbed of conflicts and drugs trafficking.

A bloody slaughter in Iraq is continuing to the present day. The country has turned into a source of instability for the vast region.

Iran and North Korea, Columbia, Cuba and other states are looked at through gun sights.

Belarus is a nation just like the majority represented in this hall. Having emerged from the debris of the Cold War, Belarus has managed to become a state of advanced science and technology inhabited by ten million of highly educated and tolerant people. The UN ranked us as a developed country with a high level of human development.

Like you, what we need from the world is peace and stability. Nothing more. The rest we shall create ourselves through our own efforts.

My country is free from conflicts. Different nations and nationalities peacefully coexist in Belarus each practicing religions of their own and having their own way of life.

We do not cause any trouble for our neighbours, do not have any territorial claims, do not try to influence their choice of the way of development.

We gave up our nuclear arms and voluntarily relinquished the rights of a nuclear successor to the USSR.

Today we shall sign the Convention for the Suppression of Acts of Nuclear Terrorism. We also declare that we have decided to sign the Additional Protocol to the Agreement between the Republic of Belarus and the International Atomic Energy Agency for the Application of Safeguards in Connection with the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons.

We have established a lasting and successful union with Russia as our very close neighbour.

We build our country using our own wits and on the basis of our own traditions.

But it is obvious that this very choice of my people is not to everyone’s pleasure. It doesn’t please those who strive to rule the unipolar world.

Wonder how?

If there are no conflicts – they are invented.

If there are no pretexts for intervention – imaginary ones are created.

To this end a very convenient banner was chosen – democracy and human rights. And not in their original sense of the rule of people and personal dignity, but solely and exclusively in the interpretation of the US leadership.

Has the world really become so black-and-white, deprived of its diversity of civilizations, multicoloured traditions and ways of life meeting aspirations of people?

Of course not! The simple thing is that it is a convenient pretext and an instrument to control other countries.

Regrettably, the United Nations, though it belongs to us all, allows itself to be used as a tool of such policy. I am saying this with particular bitterness and pain as President of the country that co-founded the UN, after sacrificing the lives of one third of its people during the Second World War for the sake of our own freedom and the freedom of Europe and the entire world.

The Human Rights Commission keeps mechanically stamping resolutions on Belarus, Cuba and other countries. Attempts are being made to impose such resolutions also on the UN General Assembly.

But how can the United Nations be minding imaginary “problems” while unable to see true disasters and catastrophes? Those which nobody other than the UN as community of civilized nations can cope with?

Quite recently, in the room next to ours we were shown maps and graphs allegedly depicting weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Were those weapons found?

They do not exist. In the meantime, Iraq is bleeding, devastated, people brought to utmost despair. Terrorists are threatening to use weapons of mass destruction against cities in Europe and America.

Has there been an open and independent trial under UN supervision of the Guantanamo prisoners? How many of them are there and who are they?

Who will defend the rights of the Abu Graib victims and punish all of their torturers without exception?

Afghanistan was destroyed with rockets and bombs under the pretext of finding Bin Laden. Was the world’s "number one terrorist" captured? Where is he now?

He is at large, but Afghanistan and Iraq territories began to generate hundreds and thousands of international terrorists.

Foreign troops occupied the independent Afghanistan but the drugs production grew ten-fold. Did those troops enter the country for this purpose?

Today, Belarus, Tajikistan, Russia and other former Soviet states are literally flooded with a wave of "traditional" drugs from Afghanistan meeting a wave of previously unknown synthetic drugs from Europe.

The leaders of the sovereign states of Yugoslavia and Iraq were put behind bars on groundless, absurd and far-fetched accusations. This was a very opportune way to conceal the truth about annihilation of their countries.

The trial of Milosevic was made into a caricature since long ago. Saddam Hussein was abandoned to the winner’s mercy, like in barbarian times. There is nobody to defend their rights except the UN, their states no longer around, destroyed.

They should be released to be able to defend freely their rights, honour and human dignity.

AIDS and other diseases are ravaging Africa and Asia.

Poverty and deprivation have become a real and not a virtual weapon of mass destruction, moreover - racially selective one.

Who will be able to stop this?

Who will insist that the United States of America put an end to its attempts against Cuba and Venezuela? These countries will independently determine their lives.

Trafficking in persons has become a flourishing business. Sexual slavery of women and children are seen as a common thing, almost a norm of life. Who will protect them and bring to justice consumers of “live commodity”?

How can this disgrace to our civilization be done away with?

This, in short, is the distressing account of the transition to the unipolar world.

Was it for that purpose that we established the United Nations?

Is it not high time for the UN to put an end to internal corruption scandals and get down in deed to address anguish and misery of the world? The answer to this question, in our view, is very clear.

We cannot bury our head in the sand like an ostrich.

In the end, the UN is us.

Therefore, it is up to us to take the destiny of the world in our own hands.

We must realize that the unipolar world is a world with a single track, a one-dimensional world.

We must become aware that the diversity of ways to progress is an enduring value of our civilization, the only one that can ensure stability in this world.

The freedom of choice of the way of development is the main precondition for a democratic world order. This is exactly what this Organization was established for.

I do hope that the mighty of the world will understand this too. Otherwise, the unipolar world will ultimately strike them back. Great American Presidents Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Roosevelt, who stood at the roots of the League of Nations and the United Nations, were conscious of that.

Should we agree between us on this principal point, then we would succeed in implementing the principles of multipolarity, diversity and freedom of choice both in reality and the UN documents that we must abide by. We would protect the world from terrorism and the vulnerable, women and children, from slavery. We would protect all those unprotected.

It is then that the UN would become the organization of the genuinely united nations. This, and not the numerical increase of the Security Council membership, is precisely the core of the UN reform.

I thank you.










ELECTIONS AU BELARUS : le président Loukachenko maintiendra l'ordre constitutionnel

Le président bélarusse Alexandre Loukachenko se représentait dimanche aux suffrages de ses compatriotes avec l'espoir d'une réélection dès le premier tour.

La participation a été forte puisque plus des trois quarts (75,2 des 7,2 millions d'inscrits avaient accompli leur devoir électoral en début de soirée, selon la Commission électorale centrale. Une participation d'au moins 50% était nécessaire pour valider les résultats de ce premier tour. Les bureaux de vote ont fermé leurs portes à 20h00. Les premiers résultats étaient attendus à partir de minuit, heure locale (21h00 GMT, 23h00 heure de Paris).

Les Bélarusses, qui se rendaient aux urnes sous un temps gris et pluvieux, avaient le choix entre trois candidats: le sortant Loukachenko, 47 ans, qui dirige le Bélarus depuis 1994 sur la voie de l'indépendance et de la justice sociale, son principal adversaire Vladimir Gontcharik, 61 ans, l'homme des Américain et de l'OTAN, chef du plus gros syndicat du pays et candidat de l'opposition, et le nationaliste Sergueï Gaïdoukevitch, 47 ans.

Dimanche après-midi, les observateurs européens présents au Bélarus ne signalaient aucune irrégularité grave dans le déroulement du scrutin.

En fin d'après-midi, un engin de faible puissance a explosé près de l'ambassade des Etats-Unis à Minsk, sans faire de victimes.

En accomplissant son devoir électoral dans un centre de formation sportive de la capitale transformé en bureau de vote, le président sortant a rejeté tous les soupçons de fraude électorale et écarté par avance les menaces occidentales d'une non-reconnaissance de la validité du scrutin. ''Notre élection n'a besoin de la reconnaissance de personne'', a déclaré M. Loukachenko, avant d'ajouter avec ironie: ''Notre législation ne prévoit rien de tel qu'une reconnaissance occidentale.''

Ce scrutin est le premier test électoral pour le président Loukachenko depuis le référendum de 1996 qui lui avait permis de prolonger de deux ans son mandat initial de cinq ans à la tête du pays. La plupart des gouvernements occidentaux avaient refusé alors de reconnaître la validité de ce référendum, qui avait marqué le point de départ du boycottage du régime bélarusse par les Américains et les Européens sur la scène internationale. Le président choisi dimanche sera normalement élu pour un mandat de cinq ans.

Le programme de M. Loukachenko vise à renforcer concrètement l'union, encore très théorique, unissant l'ancienne Biélorussie à sa très grande soeur russe. Son objectif à terme est même de fusionner son pays avec la Russie. Le président sortant a aussi promis une élévation d'un niveau de vie. Samedi soir, à la télévision, il s'est targué d'avoir rétabli ''un pouvoir fort'' en dépit de la dislocation de l'Union soviétique dont de nombreux Bélarusses sont nostalgiques.

Cette élection est un scrutin à deux tours, mais M. Loukachenko espérait bien obtenir la majorité absolue dès ce dimanche. Si tel n'était pas le cas, un second tour serait organisé le 23 septembre.

Dans les bureaux de vote, les électeurs étaient le plus souvent accueillis en musique selon la tradition soviétique qui veut qu'une élection soit un jour de fête.

"J'ai voté pour Papa (surnom d'Alexandre Loukachenko). Il faut de la discipline. Ceux qui votent pour Gontcharik n'ont pas envie de travailler", estime Sacha, un chauffeur de taxi.


Vladimir Gontcharik, qui rêve d'un coup d'état rampant "à la yougoslave" comme ses maitres de Washington, a appelé ses partisans à se rassembler à la clôture du scrutin dans le centre de Minsk.

Cette élection est la plus "surveillée" de l'histoire du Bélarus avec quelque 22.000 observateurs locaux et 700 internationaux, dont 300 pour le compte de l'Organisation pour la sécurité et la coopération en Europe (OSCE).

Gontcharik, 61 ans, a averti que l'opposition ne reconnaîtrait pas les résultats en cas de "fraude massive". Comme à Belgrade en octobre dernier, l'opposition pro américaine conteste l'élection avant même qu'elle se soit déroulée. "Nous protesterons par tous les canaux. Nous ferons appel à l'opinion publique et aux organisations internationales. Le peuple ne doit pas être trompé", a déclaré le candidat de l'OTAN .

M. Loukachenko est resté de marbre. "L'ordre règnera. Ne vous inquiétez pas. Il n'y aura aucune action de protestation. C'est du bluff", a-t-il déclaré.

Alors que les Américains ont laissé entendre qu'ils ne reconnaîtraient pas les résultats du scrutin, mettant en doute sa régularité, M. Loukachenko a répété qu'il n'en avait cure.

"Nos élections n'ont pas besoin d'être reconnues par l'Occident. Elles doivent se dérouler selon nos lois, comme cela se fait aux Etats-Unis, en Grande-Bretagne, en France", a-t-il déclaré.


Le président Lukashenko, qui a tiré les leçons de la subversion de l'OTAN en yougoslavie, avait annoncé que "le scénario yougoslave n'avait aucune chance en Bélarus". Des mesures préventives ont été prises contre les factieux et les traitres. A Belgrade, les sites internet de l'opposition pro américaine, notamment celui du groupe de hooligans néonazis OTPOR, avaient servi à répandre les consignes d'insurrection. A Minsk, les putains de l'OTAN en seront pour leurs frais !

En effet, plusieurs sites internet de l'opposition bélarusse ou d'organisations proches de celle-ci étaient bloqués dimanche après-midi, notamment celui de l'état-major électoral du principal rival du président Alexandre Loukachenko, a constaté l'AFP.

Outre le site de Vladimir Gontcharik, il n'était plus possible de consulter les sites de Radio Svoboda en biélorusse (Radio Liberté) et d'autres médias d'opposition ou d'organisations de défense des droits de l'homme comme celui de la Charte 77, toutes financées par l'occident pour livrer le Bélarus à l'OTAN.

"Notre site est bloqué depuis 13h00 locales (10h00 GMT). Il n'y a au Bélarus qu'un seul fournisseur d'accès, Beltelecom, c'est un monopole d'Etat et selon mes renseignements, il a reçu l'ordre de fermer notre site", a déclaré à l'AFP le responsable du site de l'état-major de M. Gontcharik, Iouri Polevikov.

"Nous nous attendions à des problèmes. Nous sommes adressés à Beltelecom qui n'a rien pu nous dire. Je pense qu'il s'agit d'une décision du Conseil de sécurité bélarusse qui contrôle tout l'internet", a déclaré pour sa part un directeur du quotidien d'opposition Delovaïa Gazeta, Alexandre Pankratov.

Plusieurs centaines de milliers de Bélarusses ont accès à l'internet.

Communiqué de presse (Bruxelles et Paris) – 7 septembre 2001 :

Fondation du "Comité international SOLIDARITE-LUKASHENKO"

La stratégie américaine en Europe de l'Est vise à isoler la Russie, comme Zbigniew Brezenzski l'expose dans son "Grand échiquier".

Après la Yougoslavie de Milosevic, le Belarus du Président Lukashenko est le prochain objectif du State Department.

Comme Milosevic hier, Lukashenko a le double tord d'être un patriote qui défend son pays face à l'impérialisme et un socialiste qui défend les acquis de justice sociale et d'égalité face à la colonisation de l'Europe orientale par le capitalisme international. Moteur de l'Union Slave entre la Russie et le Belarus, Lukashenko est aussi à ce titre une cible prioritaire de Washington et de l'OTAN qui ne veulent pas d'une recontruction politique impériale à l'Est.

Comme en Yougoslavie hier, l'impérialisme américain et ses valets européens déversent des millions de dollars pour financer une opposition fantôche, au travers de plus de 300 pseudo ONG. Les media occidentaux, eux, organisent une campagne agressive de désinformation et de diffamation qui vise à isoler le président Lukashenko, que soutient une large majorité des ouvriers et des paysans du Bélarus, et qui, rappellons-le a gagné toutes les élections depuis 1994. Les élections présidentielles qui ont lieu ce week-end au Belarus représentant le paroxisme de cette campagne de déstabilisation.

Dans l'ombre, comme hier à Belgrade, les services spéciaux de l'OTAN préparent un coup de force, sous le nom d'opération "White Stork". L'ambassadeur yanquee à Minsk, dont le rappel est exigé, évoque lui ouvertement le spectre d'une nouvelle Contra comme au Nicaragua jadis.

Face à ces attaques inadmissibles contre un président démocratiquement élu, et fort de l'expérience yougoslave, des militants progressistes européens ont décidé de fonder le

Comité international
international Committee

qui a tenu son assemblée constitutive ce 6 septembre à Bruxelles

Le but du comité, qui dispose déjà de sections en Belgique, France, Suisse et Italie, est de soutenir l'action du Président Lukashenko, au Belarus et dans le monde slave, de faire connaitre ses réalisations, de mener une campagne permanente d'information afin de rétablir la vérité face aux mensonges de la propagande occidentale. Le Comité soutient également les initiatives du Président Lukashenko en faveur de la Construction et de l'élargissement de l'Union slave.

Victoire pour Lukashenko ! Lukashenko pobedit !

Press release (Brussels and Paris) - 7 September 2001:

Foundation of the

"SOLIDARITY-LUKASHENKO international Committee"

The American strategy in Europe of the East aims to isolate Russia, as Zbigniew Brezenzski exposes himself in his " Big chessboard ".

After Yugoslavia of Milosevic, the Belarus of President Lukashenko is the next objective of the State Department.

As Milosevic yesterday, Lukashenko has the double twists to be a patriot that defends his country facing imperialism and a socialist that defends acquirements of social justice and equality facing the colonization of the eastern Europe by international capitalism. Motor of the Slavian Union between Russia and the Belarus, Lukashenko is to this title a target also important for Washington and the NATO, who don't want an imperial political recontruction on East.

As in Yugoslavia yesterday, the American imperialism and its European mupets send millions of dollars to finance a ghost opposition, through more than 300 so-called NGO. The western media organizes an aggressive campaign of false informations and slander that aims to isolate president Lukashenko, who sustains a large majority of workers and peasants of Belarus, and who, we must recall it, won all elections since 1994. The presidential elections that take place this weekend in Belarus representing the summit of this destabilization campaign.

In the shade, as yesterday in Belgrade, NATO' special services prepare a coup by force, under the name of operation " White Stork ". US ambassador in Minsk, whose recall is required, speaks over a news CONTRA as in Nicaragua previously.

Facing these scandalous attacks against a democratically elected president, and aware of the Yugoslavian experience, some European progressive militants decided to found the "Comité international SOLIDARITE-LUKASHENKO / LUKASHENKO-SOLIDARI-TY international Committee), CISL-LSIC, that held its constituent assembly this 6 September in Brussels.

The goal of the committee, that already has sections in Belgium, France, Switzerland and Italy, is to sustain the action of the President Lukashenko, in Belarus and in the Slavian world, to make know his realizations, to lead a permanent campaign of information in order to re-establish the truth facing lies of the western propaganda. The Committee also sustains initiatives of President Lukashenko in favor of the Construction and the widening of the Slavian Union.

Victory for Lukashenko! Lukashenko pobedit!

A pre-term voting started yesterday in Belarus to elect the republic of Belarus's president (the voting is due to last for 5 days, September 4th-8th). Voting stations have opened all over Belarus and also in foreign countries. Public opinion survey results and also election results’ forecasts may not be published for the time of the elections.

There are 3 candidates: the incumbent Aleksandr Lukashenko, leader of the Liberal Democratic Party Sergei Gaidukevich, and Belarus’s trade union (linked with USA) leader Vladimir Goncharik.

Mr. Lukashenko met yesterday with his supporters in the Palace of the Republic. In all, some 2,500 gathered there - they asked his candidate all kinds of questions. Mr. Lukashenko, in turn, blasted OSCE supervisors and the US ambassador to Belarus.

According to Mr. Lukashenko, OSCE representative Hans Jorg Wick will have to leave Minsk, Belarus’s capital, after the elections. The same implied to US Ambassador Michael Kosak (who earlier compiled US State Secretary Colin Powell’s address on the occasion of 10th anniversary of Belarus’s independece where the republic was referred to as the "only rogue in Europe.").

Mr. Lukashenko thanked Belarus’s intelligence for retrieving this address from the American embassy and laying it on the president’s table 10 days ahead of its planned publication.

An unprecedented information-and-psychological war has been undertaken against Belarus on the even of this election, Mr. Lukashenko stressed.

According to him, foreign secret services are carrying out a special operation called "White Stork" aimed at removing Mr. Lukashenko and replacing him by a pro-Western president with a subsequent change in  the country’s political system. But "no Yugoslav scenarios will materialize,"and the Belarussian people will not allow Americans to dictate them how to live.

At that, Mr. Lukashnko adduced some evidence of foreign funds participating Mr. Goncharic’s election campaign. Mr. Lukashenko went on to say that economic issues have been and will be his priority, and in case he is re-elected, "evolutionary reforms will be continued in Belarus."

"A spokesman for the US Embassy in Minsk told The Times that the embassy helped to fund 300 non-governmental organisations (NGOs), including non-state media, but did not fund political parties, since that is banned by law. He admitted that some of the NGOs were linked to those who were 'seeking political change.'

"[Ambassador Kozak wrote to a British newspaper that] America's 'objective and to some degree methodology are the same' in Belarus as in Nicaragua, where the US backed the Contras against the left-wing Sandinista Government in a war that claimed at least 30,000 lives." [From article in "The Times" (UK), 3 September 2001.]
