Man: "I know all about how the Poles only the tail lift ride up, no one what's to blame, there were Stalin, Hitler, and selling the Polish system, which was not only in Poland but also in the Romanians, Czechs, were all the same . Why we love the Roman conquerors, and why Stalin was worse? But he did not win, did not attack first, in my opinion. I do not praise him, not defending, but worse than it is. When Stalin monument remained, though worth it. A totalitarian regime, Communists — advanced one and all to the memory never left. Especially lifting tail, Youth Union, that's what the parasite, parasites, and the same thing as the Young Communist League. Stalin would have crushed them if they continue to behave like this: just go to the festival walk, run and do not want it — the future totalitarian regime. "

Suvorov many expressions of Belarus, this fact is not, they say, has always been friends with Russia, but it is not. I am pleased that the part of Europe want to protect smaller nations and at least morally support us. attention in Belarus itself this is not enough, not enough. western regions are oriented toward Europe, and here remember all the trouble they were. necessary to have Memorial Day, a day of trouble, so we could pay homage to our forefathers to march through the city with flags were carried, but I think we have it will not be soon.
