Karatkevich monument may fall victim to road construction

The monument may disappear through bypass road construction.

The news came from Tatsyana Sevyarynets, coordinator of the BCD organizing committee in Vitsebsk and Vitsebsk region after she met with the Deputy Chief architect of Vitsebsk Leanid Bahdanau.

Partisan Glory Park will be cut along to join the Gagarin and Chekhov Street and bring a bypass road to the the planned bridge across the North Dяvina. Minay Museum will be moved along with the ensemble. And the monument to Uladzimir Karatkevich at the intersection of Suvorov and Chekhov street will disappear.

Mr Bahdanau spoke vaguely about the fate of the monument: “Well, we will put it somewhere”.

The monument to Uladzimir Karatkevich was put up in Vitsebsk in 1994. Its author is Ivan Kazak. The writer’s birthday is celebrated here every November 26.
