Why in the midst of Belarusians hitherto NO Nobel Prize winner?

Tsigankov: "On Thursday, October 11, at the Nobel Institute in Oslo, was declared winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature. They became the British novelist Doris Lesing. Only one of the candidates, the national poet of Belarus Ryhor Baradulin again left without merit. Who will be declared the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize. Middle of the contenders for the Peace Prize and two Belarusian: Managing the Belarusian Social Democratic Hulk, ex-chairman of the Supreme Soviet of Belarus Stanislav Shushkevich and human rights activist Ales Bialiatski. But let’s be realistic: there are few chances. What should happen in the world and in Belarus, that a citizen of Belarus won the Nobel Prize. And when can it happen? "
Akudovich: "In short, it will happen when we do believe that our people deserve the greatest rewards. While neither candidates nor society, nor all together, we do not believe that our people receive the Nobel.
In our minds the image sits reduced Belarusian — "Spit and plow pan", "baby swamps, bushes" and so on — and because we can not imagine for themselves, as under these low grayish sky can be born a man worthy of such superior merit. "
Tsigankov: "Is that why people from Belarus just seeking something outside of Belarus — in the East or in the West? "
Akudovich: "Specifically so. This emphasizes that Actually we lack the majestic people who do stately affairs, and they deserve to be included in the catalog of the most famous people of our time. "
Tsigankov: "In the world more than 200 countries, and its own Nobel Prize winners have only a few 10’s. Baltics and Ukraine is also not yet have theirx favorites. Maybe I should not worry so? Worth it, because it means getting into some "big leagues?"
Akudovich: "You see, worry this occasion we really need. Just in order to tofeel this civilization, we would be very out of place Nobel laureate. For example, the British one more winner — one less, and it adds nothing to their style. But for us it is very crucial. This means that in a world society Nobel recognizes us as vsepolnotsennuyu civilization. "
