The more raspytvayusya in our rural grandparents about the war, the more convinced genius sayings Adamovich. "War under the roof." Specifically, under the roof, in the midst of neighbors and relatives, and major drama unfolded Wartime. Without which the picture Belarus guerrilla never be complete.
Reporter: "And partisans were local or encirclement it was?"
Renya: "No. Local. Maybe encirclement were. But more of their own. Their, their. Ai, that read? My older sister … Sasha was such Dragon. Mother bartered among the Germans soldiers shoes.

But whatever "nasabachanym" nor was the Russian Medvedev, however languid any life, no matter what may seem rather silly at the teleyaschika chiefs, village elders have one bright hope. For real Alexander Lukashenko she has no case. This is faster, the main goodie transmission of "Around the world". Robin Hood and Santa Claus all rolled into one. Which looked forward, but understand that there are no miracles.
