Dr. Geremek — a man of honor and principles

According to the chairman of the Joint civilian Party Anatoly Lebedko, Geremek was a sincere friend of Belarus and fought for the democratization of its political system. Practically he was a member probelorusskih lobby in the European structures.
"This is one of the main tasks — have an effective lobby probelorusskoe in international organizations, in Europe. Sovereign Geremek was indeed one of the those people, that really worked for Belarus. Very sorry! Not enough people who would know so well yesterday and Belarus Belarus present, as he had, and recipes on the Belarusian issue. Why is he so well aware the situation in Belarus? After all, he was from an authoritarian country — and was sitting in the bullpen, and organized protests, was in power during the period of transformation. Sam went through everything, because better than policy, for example, Portugal or Switzerland, to understand the nature of the Belarusian authoritarianism and Lukashism. "
Past chairman of the Supreme Council Stanislav Shushkevich notes that Geremek was very educated and experienced person, his knowledge and experience to use for the benefit of people.
"We have met many times, the last time — in Last year in Strasbourg, during the celebration of the 90th anniversary of the Belarusian People’s Republic, when I was chairman of the BNR Ivonka Survila and other Belarusian officials. There was a very frank conversation, Geremek heartily helped Belarus. Generally it I was very impressive ability to express their true thoughts and make some suggestions. Usually, when you come with your neuvvyazkami to a famous person, for you posoboleznovala and recommend what you already know. And he was a man who knew how to do. For example, he was tempted in international traffic, knew the work of Polish zabugornyh institutions in Europe. This is from his advice I contacted the Polish Institute in Dusseldorf, where we decide it must difficult to do in our criteria. "
Deputy chairman of the Belarusian Popular Front Vintsuk Vyachorka mentioned that he met with Bronislaw Geremek in 3 states it: when’s the last "Solidarity" was a minister Foreign Affairs Poland, and later — when he was heading the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly, and during an MP in the European Parliament. In all positions Geremek remained true democrat, saw Vintsuk Vyachorka and remembered:
"If he, the Minister, perceived us Belarusian democratic leaders, I asked him" Panie ministrze ". He asked me to call him doctor. SAY that administrative positions come and go, but a professorship he more proud. Indeed, like any changed its position, name Geremek has always beenabout the important position he held. For me Geremek — a man of principle. In very difficult times in Poland, which in difficulty can be compared with our present, it took fully unambiguous, risky decision — to take the side of the democratic movement on the side of the "Solidarity". Suffered for it, but I never regretted. It is a pity that such people, an iconic figure for the European history, so unfair and retired early from us. "
