The leader of the Belarusian Christian Democracy congratulated the Charter'97 initiative and the Charter97.org site on the anniversary.
"On November 10, the Charter 97 was 20 years old.
In fact, today Charter is the people's tribune. Yes, for some people, the Charter news sound very harsh, but do not be afraid: the people speak even more radically among themselves now.
The Charter team can be congratulated: a lot of believers, pastors, priests and even priests get an idea about the Belarusian politics reading Charter.
It's quite simple: when a strict regime reigns in the country, it's very difficult to stay "in the middle", in the beloved Belarusian place. Charter choses to be on the front line.
Congratulations on the 20th anniversary, Chartians!", – Pavel Seviarynets wrote.
