Youth in Brest pay tribute to Belarus insurgents

The youth in Brest have paid tribute to the participants of the 1863 uprising headed by Kastus Kalinouski against Russian czar's rule by laying the white-red-white flowers to the memorable cross in the village of Damacava, 40 km off the regional center.
The village witnessed a battle between the insurgents and the Russian troops. The cross, erected back in 1920s, survived the Communist rule thanks to the local Catholics.

The representatives of the youth pro-democracy groups in Brest also attended the service at the local cathedral and prayed for the Belarusian people. A Greek-Catholic pastor read the prayer, reports
