Why did Belarusians come to Minsk from all over the world? Another important event in Belarus - the 7th congress of Belarusians of the world. Belarusians, who live abroad, have a 25-year-old tradition to gather in Minsk once every four year, discuss topical issues, to talk to fellow compatriots and simply visit native land. Valentina Shevchenko (Canada): Belarus lives inside you. Even if you live abroad, you are a Belarusian anyway.
