Marzalyuk at BelTA’s photo exhibition: Positive agenda is impossible if you hate the other side

MINSK, 17 January (BelTA) – BelTA’s photo exhibition Parallel Worlds indicates that an absolute majority of Belarusians is intent on creation, BelTA learned from a corresponding member of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus, Doctor of Historical Sciences, Professor Igor Marzalyuk.

According to Igor Marzalyuk, the photo exhibition Parallel Worlds, which opened at the National Library of Belarus on 17 January, is a vivid testimony to the fact that an absolute majority of Belarusians is intent on creation, on positive changes in their own country. “We can look at black and white, at this dichotomy, which indicates that there can be no positive agenda if you hate the other side,” he remarked. “Our most important task is to mend our society, enhance it, and find common ground instead of severing and destroying it.”

Belarus is a country of kind people, a country of positive meanings, he added. “Let’s remember for our entire life that we had the most powerful anti-fascist movement out of all the countries occupied by the Nazi. And we had the smallest number of traitors. Up to 30,000 at best. And 374,000 people opposed them. Good narratives of our culture based on the Christian tradition prevailed, are prevailing, and will continue prevailing,” Igor Marzalyuk is convinced.

The photo exhibition Parallel Worlds will stay open on the 22nd floor (an observation deck) of the National Library of Belarus on 17-22 January. Admittance is free.
