Every day during the summer on the site of Liberty new page book by Alexander Lukashuk "Liharev. Oswald in Minsk."
In the spring of 1992, during a meeting with the first U.S. ambassador in Minsk David Swartz at the head of the Republic of Belarus Stanislav Shushkevich surprised diplomat story of his personal acquaintance with an American who has lived here for thirty years before the Belarusian independence.

… If in 1960 a recent graduate of the Institute of Physics of the Academy of Sciences of Belarus Stanislav Shushkevich, who did research at the Minsk Radio Factory, was called to the factory Party committee, the least he was willing to talk about the grammar of the Russian language.
In the party of young engineers reported their confidence — teach declension and conjugation of the new working-American. Shushkievich studied English at university, but it immediately warned — there is no talk about the past life with Oswald did not behave.
Stanislav Shushkevich notebook Oswald (record above right)
Oswald wrote in his notebook the teacher's name: Stanislav Shushkevich. Classes are held in the building where he worked as an engineer, after the change of Oswald came there, went up to the second floor, and they urged the grammar.
Language was given to hard. Oswald was not a very diligent student, did not show much interest, emotion, did not smile and did not thank the classroom. But after a while he began to understand something when Shushkievich spoke slowly, helped gestures, wrote a few words on a piece of paper and opened the dictionary. *
Ambassador Swartz immediately turned on the story Shushkevich in a telegram to the State Department. From the administration of President George W. Bush immediately went requests for archiving. Swartz asked the KGB for a meeting — he graciously accepted, listened and promised to contribute.
More ambassador to this topic did not come back — on the agenda was the withdrawal of nuclear weapons from Belarus, the construction of the entire complex full of government relations with the new state, the preparation of the first visit of the President of Belarus in Washington.
Thirty years after the Kennedy assassination, in the summer of 1993 Shushkievich met with President Clinton at the White House.
Clinton and Kennedy
Kennedy was a personal hero of Clinton, there is a film where Kennedy shaking hands with him. On his acquaintance with Oswald during a conversation at the White House Shushkievich not mention either then or during Clinton's visit to Belarus. **
Bill Clinton's visit to Belarus
Human contact is sometimes unexpectedly affect the story — like, perhaps, lack of it. But it was not just a personal historical nostalgia of two participants of the meeting in the Oval Office, where vital shadow of his former master. That's when the Clinton administration was engaged in a matter bluntly Kennedy assassination.
In 1992, Congress established an independent "Radu in reviewing the documents murder," and the Clinton administration, which took over power from George W. Bush in January 1993, had to deal with the execution of the decision of the Congress, to organize the work of Parliament. ***
In September 1998, Bill Clinton received the report. Rada made to declassify and has published more than twenty thousand documents the FBI, more than three thousand — the CIA, as more than three thousand — the Pentagon, thousands of records, archival materials from other agencies and securities of private citizens — fully 33,176 documents. Total volume of "Collections Kennedy," open to the public, has exceeded four million pages.
The report was a section under the heading "Belarus":
With the help of the U.S. Embassy in Minsk Tungeym Chairman of the Board, Member of the Board and CEO of Goal Marvel in November 1996 reviewed the extensive case file tracking Oswald KGB. The case describes more than two years of extensive tracking and analysis of the KGB for Lee Harvey Oswald during his residence in the Belarusian capital. Some of the documents have been applied Norman Mailer in his book "The History of Oswald."
Parliament was unable to obtain a copy of the case, in part because of the deterioration of relations between the U.S. and Belarus in 1997-98.
Again, the Board strongly recommends that made every possible effort to get the American people for these important documents on the activities of the accused assassin Lee Harvey Oswald in the years before the murder.
Rada also complained of a lack of cooperation with Moscow.
However, less than a year later, in June 1999, during the meeting of the "Big Eight" in Cologne, Russian President Boris Yeltsin made a gesture of international experts was then called the "diplomacy of documents" — Bill Clinton gave 39 folder "case of Oswald." It was not the KGB documents, and the Central Committee of the CPSU, the Foreign Ministry and the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the USSR, who were born just after the murder. In Moscow, then, after the Cuban missile crisis, it is feared accusations of plotting the assassination, and it was dedicated to the feverish correspondence with the Soviet Embassy in Washington, references and explanations.
Ming period Oswald there is only mentioned, but have not disclosed — the materials of the Minsk KGB did not appear.
Then, in the summer of 1999, Yeltsin said the transfer of documents is another president — Alexander Lukashenko. On the field, in the Brest region, he told reporters:
— I looked at these things — there is nothing there to tear the last hair on his head and cried.
And he explained:
— We're not going to spit on his story.
Minsk magpie-crow, flying above the KGB, sing in their own way:
This was not given,
This was not given,
This was not given,
This was not given,
And it gave.
In such a proportion. All the more interesting — and to whom it gave.
* The materials of the Warren Commission's seen a number of letters and notebook entries Oswald made in Russian — at quite a reasonable level for daily communication needs. Upon returning to America, he even got professional counseling that can be interpreters and translators from Russian.
In Belarus ** Clinton met another man, who personally knew Oswald. This is the interpreter of the U.S. Embassy Ina Markova, who met with Oswald when I was in inyaze. She translated the conversation leader of the parliamentary opposition Zenon Pozniak and the American president in Kurapaty.
Although *** investigated the Kennedy assassination presidential Warren Commission in the years 1963-64, then held additional hearings in Congress in the 1970s, the American public continued to ask questions, and that is why what happened in Dallas. The secrecy that has been an integral feature of the work of state institutions during the Cold War, did not contribute to the opening of archives, especially documents intelligence and security services. Also, not all documents created commissions and committees of inquiry have been available for public inspection.
Suspicions caused by secrecy, eroded confidence in the validity of the federal government and harmed the credibility. Grew luxuriantly kanspiralyagichnuyu theory, resonance to the film by Oliver Stone's "JFK" (adopted in America abbreviation initials of the 35th president) with the conclusions of the conspiracy and the involvement of government agencies. In response to the film was a book by David Reyteza with the eloquent title "100 errors of fact and conclusions of the movie" JFK. "
Because of public concern in 1992, Congress passed the "Act on the collection of documents relating to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy," The Board has created and endowed him with special powers.
The act authorized the parliament to work with the State Department to include the documents of foreign governments, especially from Russia and Belarus. Minsk telegram Swartz and his talks with the leadership of the KGB came to the attention of the new investigation.
