Sovereign Belarus: Era of Achievements exhibition by Belarusian Telegraph Agency opens at Minsk’s Moskva cinema


The exhibition showcases 50 photos, of which 25 are in colour, showing how we lived 25-30 years ago, compared to today.

Human memory is unable to keep every detail from fading, but photos help us recall past events and restore our impressions. They enable us to assess the scale of change. According to BelTA Director General Dmitry Zhuk, the project primarily targets young people, who will be able to learn more about the history of their country.

The Deputy Chair of the Standing Commission for Healthcare, Physical Education, Family and Youth Policy at the House of Representatives at the National Assembly, Yelena Shamal, notes that the exhibition makes history more accessible for the young while jogging the memories of the older generation. “I hope that this exhibition will help us remember the things that are really valuable to us,” she said.

The event is part of BelTA’s project to illustrate the changes of the past 20 years in Belarus. Comparing modern photos with those from the archives, we can see industrial and agricultural progress, as well as that in transport infrastructure, science, medicine, and the Armed Forces. Recent shots show the spheres of life in which our country has made the greatest progress and of which it can be most proud. The exhibition runs until October 16th in Minsk, with a mobile version having already travelled to Shchuchin, for the Day of Belarusian Written Language. It will later tour the regional centres of Belarus.

The Belarusian Telegraph Agency’s Sovereign Belarus: Era of Achievements project shows the scale of change countrywide in a short period. Visit bylostalo.belta.by website to view the photos for yourself.
