When I chat with people on interpals.net and they ask me how is Belarus getting on I answer everything is not so bad right now except our culture. It’s has been degrading. What does it mean? It means a lot of things and one of the most obvious ones is disrespect for historical legacy. I used not to care so much for our history as our people do. But when I got a chance to visit Europe I became to learn history of different European countries including my own Belarus. When I visited Poland I saw with what solicitude they treat their history. I saw as people there know and respect their history, respect themselves. As for Belarusians, we not only know nothing of our real history, we are feed up with Soviet-alike made-up history. You see with such mind attitude we have saved almost nothing from historical epochs before Soviet Union. Besides our authority destroy all the last monuments which survived within Soviet period by means some miracle. It was said enough about destruction of Grodno historical center, but there was said nothing of Bobruysk fortress destruction.
