The concept of “native land” includes such components as friendship, school, place where you spent your childhood and adolescence years and the house of your parents, Pilot-Cosmonaut, Hero of Russia Oleg Novitsky said.
The event took place at premises of the Mogilev Oblast Executive Committee. Thirty talented young Belarusians from all over Mogilev Oblast, including exemplary students, public life activists, winners of academic excellence competitions and various contests, were invited to attend the event.
The Year of Native Land implies not only, for example, construction of infrastructure facilities in the regions. Greater emphasis should be placed on the ideological aspect. Natalya Kochanova underlined that the love to native places is in the heart of every person and it is impossible to reflect it in one action plan.
When touring the Germany exposition Maksim Ryzhenkov noted that the Belarusians know and love the German classical writers. “We would like Germany to learn more about the Belarusian literature, both modern and classic,” he added.
The relevant government agencies of Belarus and Russia are taking care of the matter, noted Grigory Rapota. “They are preparing some proposals, a roadmap. We will do it. Not right away but eventually,” he assured.
