A new inscription has appeared on “Shchotkina’s Wall” in Minsk (in a yard at the intersection of Karl Marx Street, Valadarski Street and Independence Avenue). The inscription ‘Cleanness is the illusion of order’ appeared on the wall on the morning of October 3.

Inscriptions and graffiti started appearing on the wall at the beginning of 2017. The portrait of Mariana Shchotkina, the then Minister of Labour, and the inscription “It was me who invented the freeloaders’ tax” appeared there first. The wall got its name then. Other graffiti appeared there later but all of them were removed by utility workers. The previous graffiti was noticed there in June.
