      Belarussian President receives award from Russian Orthodox Church

      05.06.2007, 19.36

      MINSK, June 5 (Itar-Tass) - President Alexander
      Lukashenko of Belarus has received the highest
      award that the Russian Orthodox Church bestows on
      secular people ­ the order of St Vladimir of the First Degree.

      The awarding ceremony took place Thursday in the
      olden town of Polotsk, where Lukashenko came to
      take part in festivities on the occasion of
      consecration of a reliquary of St Yevfrosinya of
      Polotsk, the most venerated Belarussian woman saint.

      The presidential press service said Lukashenko
      received the award for considerable contribution
      in the development of relations between various
      religious denominations and between countries.

      Lukashenko said, on his part, he did not expect
      this award and he regarded it as a sign of
      distinction given to the entire Belarussian people.
