openbelarus Well, some words about The Hero City.
May 8 - 9 are Victory Days (win in the Second World War). Belarus and Minsk were occupied in 1941-1944 by Nazis and more than the forth part of our small nation was killed. But about 1,5 million Belarusians fighted in the Soviet Army, guerđ║illa groups (in reality, they controlled 30 per cent of all occupied territories), Polish Army (include some battles in the territory of Italy) and French Resistance. Minsk had its own strong Resistance movement and, in fact, it was always the point of war, not safe for the Nazis. Although Belarus was a republic of Soviet Union, in 1945 it became one of the first founders and members of UNO. In 1970s UNO and Soviet authorities present Minsk with special order and the title of the Hero City.
