Akudovich: A little vtryruyuchy, we can say that the Declaration of Sovereignty of the Belarusians in the mass was seen as a regular occupation — the occupation of independence … Only through the power we are united into one … We are looking for a nation where it could not be. That national canon that developed the pioneers of the Belarusian revival in the early XX century — or he approached the Belarusians whose attention is not headed for the fate of cultural and linguistic values, and the values of the social order?

Kazakevitch: The value of independence can be for many only when the threat to its loss. At the very least, only then will we know how firm the phenomenon … Belarusian nation is not homogeneous in terms of interpretations of the past, present, and future vision, but rather, it is a natural and normal for a modern nation.
