Lukashenko calls for rebuilding pioneer organization, BRSM Youth Union


It is necessary to recalibrate the work of the pioneer organization and the BRSM Youth Union, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he met with activists of Belarus' pioneer organization on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the pioneer movement, BelTA has learned.

“I will tell you frankly that we have to seriously revise the work of the pioneer organization and our youth organization. The biggest drawback is that pioneers and the pioneer organization have weak-tie relationships with the youth organization, the BRSM Youth Union, while BRSM is not very interested in your work. We had an iron rule in the past: Komsomol members were the elder brothers who led the way. In other words, a new generation of young people was raised from pioneers. We still under-perform in this matter,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.

According to the president, the pioneer movement might fail without the active participation of the BRSM Youth Union. “Not a single government agency can handle this. Your senior comrades should be doing this. Therefore, we need to do a lot of work here. We will rebuild this system, and it should be no worse than back in those days. In this case we will have enough patriots and there will be no issue of patriotism,” the head of state said.
