Festive events will be held in Europe, Canada and the USA.
The Belarusian diaspora in many countries around the world will join the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Belarusian People's Republic (BPR). This was announced by the representatives of the National Organizing Committee for the celebration at a press-conference on February 21 in Minsk.
"The date of the BPR's 100th anniversary will not remain without the attention of the Belarusian diaspora around the world," said the chairman of the For Freedom movement Yury Hubarevich. Festive events, he said, will be held in Prague, Riga, Vilnius, Warsaw and Bialystok, New York, Washington and Philadelphia, Toronto, Ottawa, and London. "There will be enough intensive programs, including those involving government representatives, and the scientific community of these countries," - Hubarevich said.
Politician Viachaslau Siuchyk added that the Belarusians would celebrate the 100th anniversary of the BPR in Ireland, Belgium, Israel and Ukraine. As for the celebration in Belarus, then, as Siuchyk stressed, "the main thing is that the Belarusian authorities do not use violence against peaceful participants of the festive event."
