What do Belarus and Switzerland have in common?
What unites Belarus and Switzerland? Let's start with today's event. A monument to a native of Belarus Tadeusz Kosciuszko was opened in Switzerland. The event is not of a global scale, but... it depends on how you look at it. It is believed that Kosciuszko is the most famous Belarusian in the world by origin. The geography of his life is impressive: he was born near the present Brest, he is the national hero of Belarus, Poland and the USA, an honorary French citizen, he was also imprisoned in the Peter and Paul Fortress in Russia and died in Switzerland.
