Some people name Kalinowski a Belarusian national hero. Recently Belarusian foreign minister Uladzimir Makei said that Kalinowski belongs to Belarusian history and that he is a figure in Lithuanian and Polish history as well. This is an awful logic. It implies that fascist collaborators are Belarusian heroes too, just as Wilhelm Kube [Nazi senior official in the occupying government of the Soviet Union with the rank of Generalkommissar for Weissruthenien], a Hitler’s executioner of the Belarusian people in the WWII. A sacramental question to the foreign minister is the following: Won’t the participation of Belarusian delegation in the reburial ceremony of Kalinowski remnants be a justification of Polish gentry activities to turn Belarusian lands into the eastern part of Poland?
The European Union has failed and liberalism is in crisis. Among the causes of this failure are globalisation and the negative reactions of society to multiculturalism and immigration.
Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative demonising the EU, claiming that the EU and EU elites have robbed European states of their sovereignty and are responsible for the impoverishment of European peoples, as well as that the EU is disintegrating. No evidence given to support the claim that the EU has failed. The European Parliament’s Spring 2019 Eurobarometer, measuring public attitudes to the EU three months ahead of the European elections, reveals that despite the various internal and external challenges to the EU of the past years, the European sense of togetherness does not seem to have weakened. Continued support for EU membership goes with a strong belief (68%) that EU countries overall have benefited from being part of the EU - equalling the highest level recorded since 1983. In addition, 61% of respondents say their country’s EU membership is a good thing. Read here for the EU's main achievements in terms of freedom of movement, creation of the world’s biggest single market and other social and political achievements. In addition, as can be read here, the latest EU public opinion survey, conducted in late February 2019, highlights continued strong support for the European Union.
