Today, August 23 — Europe-wide Day of Remembrance of victims of all totalitarian and authoritarian regimes. The European Parliament has announced on this day in memory of the signing of the "Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact," which contributed to the outbreak of the Second World War. In Europe, it is the only day all the victims — and Nazism and communism. Thus both modes essentially vravnyanyya.
Alexander Kozulin: "The interesting thing is that now once again beginning to think about all the sacrifices, because human memory is different — can be long, and there may be short. Therefore, the fact that the European Parliament announced this Memorial Day, it is already very good. Indeed, people in the European Parliament begin to think about the values that are timeless. "
Sergei Kalyakin: "Sam" the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact "has nothing to do with the victims of totalitarianism. Therefore, I am for the victims of totalitarian regimes were honored and the most important thing to happen in the future is not anything like this. But I do not associate proclamation This Day memory with the signed pact, because it was a political agreement, which was a lot in the world for the existence of mankind. "
Statkevich: "I think it is a moral and necessary step, because to forget the events and dates can not be such. When we do not condemn the actions of the authorities, they will be repeated and repeated, and the return to some form to us and our descendants. I I think that many of yesterday's and today's political problems stem from the fact that we have not dealt with the past, including the events of the twentieth century. Unless this is done, the freedom of our country, and that is her well-being — will always be in question " .
Nyaklyayeu: "I do not agree with all the ideas that go with the West or the East. Often they are populist, politicized. However, this date — the Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Totalitarian Regimes in my opinion is very correct, because it is in poor Belarus Belarusians went on all sides and everyone knows about it. therefore fully agree that this date is relevant associations and the corresponding desire that this will never happen again. "
Milinkevich: "Indeed in Belarus for a long time, there is no freedom. As for me, in my family, too, had enough of the victims. Through family is all gone and it still hurt quite badly, as you know immediately what it is flour. Therefore, I believe that there is nothing worse when one person humiliates another. And I'm fighting for freedom, because everyone has the right to freedom. Everyone has the right to live according to their own desires, subject to the laws, not a dictator. "
Anatoly Lebedko "I am convinced that in this question my position and the position of the United Civil Party Yaroslav Romanchuk, which we offer to the presidential campaign, one hundred percent will be different from the position of the Belarusian authorities. Naturally, that power does not notice such decisions by international organizations, as well as the nature Belarus — she authoritarian application of the totalitarian system. For us this is very important to talk, because the more people will know about it, you start to think not only about what happened in the 30's, and draw an analogy with what is happening in the country. Therefore we need to bring to the European Parliament and people solutions to conduct basic "literacy campaign" among the population. "
