Lukashenka: Pursuit of pleasures is a real threat for society

“The cult of consumerism and pursuit of pleasures are becomingthe real threats of people’s spiritual degeneration and imperfect state transformation,” Alyaksandr Lukashenka noted. He paid attention to the fact that ‘moral degradation of the society could be observed in many western states – people are refusing from Christian values, families are getting destroyed.

"The displays of the world economic crisis are combined with humanitarian problems in our country and all over the world. Unfortunately, the quickly progressing moral deformations have also affected our people,” Lukashenka told Interfax-West.

The Belarusian society is facing the same serious problems as any other European country, the President said. According to Lukashenka, it is necessary to strengthen Belarusians’ morality and fight drug addiction and alcoholism.   

Belarus will continue supporting religious and national peace, Alyaksandr Lukashenka noted.
