Sergeyenko: Belarus' history has many periods that need additional study

MINSK, 11 May (BelTA) – The Belarusian history has many periods that should be studied more thoroughly, Head of the Belarus President Administration Igor Sergeyenko told reporters at the session of the National Historical Policy Council, BelTA has learned.

According to him, the instruments to preserve historical memory include textbooks and active awareness-raising campaigns. “The events in the run-up to 9 May and the very celebrations were widely covered by the media. Those were meetings, all kinds of events, celebration of veterans, visits to memorial places. This goes beyond the history of the Great Patriotic War, as there are a lot of interesting periods in the history of Belarus that require additional study, and not just study, but adequate media coverage reaching out not only to young people, but also to all population groups,” Igor Sergeyenko said.

“This way, we will be able to preserve historical memory,” the head of the Belarus President Administration added.

Igor Sergeyenko emphasized that the National Historical Policy Council under the Belarus President Administration is already up and running. “The council was created in line with the instruction of the head of state. Four commissions have already been set up within the council: the commission on conceptual basics of national history, the commission on scientific and methodological support of historical policy, the commission on information and educational work and the commission on foreign policy support of historical policy. The commissions have made plans and are working to implement them. During today's meeting, we will discuss teaching of social disciplines and humanities at higher learning institutions, the preparation of a textbook on the history of the Belarusian state for higher educational institutions, as well as adjustments to the teaching of the history of the Great Patriotic War in all educational institutions. The participants of the session will also discuss the organization and conduct of various exhibition programs in the country. The council is working in line with the plan and I am sure that we will be able to discuss all the above-mentioned issues today,” Igor Sergeyenko said.
