The artist said that the organizing committee is trying to install a memorial plaques in honor of the anniversary on the Yanka Kupala theater and on Valadarsky Street.

"We also proposed to rename Valadarsky Street in Brothers Lutskevich Street. We have been fighting for it since May, but no results so far. The red tape drags on. It is clear that this will not be decided yet. The board is ready, it is not a problem to hang it. If it becomes clear that the authorities will not do this, we will make a cardboard layout and will install it for at least a day to lay flowers there," – Mikola Kupava said.
