Poster in Hrodna dedicated to the year of culture features image of Yanka Kupala instead of Yakub Kolas.

"No people's wealth is more precious than their native language," this line on the billboard was signed as belonging to Yakub Kolas. Its author is, indeed, Yakub Kolas. But next to it is a large portrait of another people's poet -- Yanka Kupala.

The picture was posted on Facebook by Mikhas Skobla.
