On March 25, Belsat TV will have a seven-hour livestream of the March of Dignity and Freedom, the concert near the Opera House in Minsk as well as rallies in other Belarusian cities of Belarus. Let’s celebrate Freedom Day together!


The Belarusian People’s Republic came into existence at the end of the First World War, when Bolshevik forces left Minsk and the city was occupied by German troops. On March 25, 1918 the Provisional Government (Rada) proclaimed the independence of the BNR. After the Red Army re-entered Minsk, the Communist government replaced the Rada; its members had to emigrate.
