MINSK, 15 May (BelTA) - The modern state symbols of Belarus are a sign of the country's sovereignty and the main purpose of the fight against it, Piotr Petrovsky, an expert with the Belarusian public association Belaya Rus, said in an interview to Belarus 1 TV Channel, BelTA has learned.
“The victory in the Great Patriotic War, the modern state symbols, which should be called the national symbols, are just a symbol of sovereignty and independence and the main purpose of propaganda against us,” said Piotr Petrovsky.
Director – Editor-in-Chief of the Belarus Segodnya publishing house Dmitry Zhuk drew attention to the West's policy towards the post-Soviet space: first of all, it is important to kill the victors' gene in the people. This is why, in his opinion, the use of white-red-white symbols, which the collaborationists used to mark themselves with during the war, is so actively promoted by the opposition. If the Belarusians accept these symbols, it means that with time the West will be able to do anything with the nation, the head of the media holding company said.
