Some informational media were broadcasting the ceremony online.
Red Church has always been the place open for people who prayed for their Motherland and for the destiny and future of the country and its people. Also, on this day, the church was the place where one can hear the voice of the nation that reflects the voice of Nation’s pride – Rygor Baradulin. Silent prayer gathered people who cried, brought flowers, listened to audio-recited poems. The personality of the poet, his life and devotion to Lord and Belarus will always stay for the people and an inspiration. The liturgy was held by Archbishop Monsignor of Minsk-Magilyov diocese Tadeusz Kondrusiewicz. And even during the liturgy the numerous people were joining the ceremony with flowers…
