The Brest Fortress is one of the "Hero Cities" from the Great Patriotic War, a designation from Soviet times that has carried on to today. Below is a photo of the memorial designation that is located along the walkway near the Moscow Kremlin's tomb of the Unknown Soldiers and eternal flame.

As we leave Brest, it is worth noting that the people of Brest are HAPPY! Very happy!

Vitebsk was the scene of one of the fiercest battles to free the city in 1944.











Trivia time: What is the national animal of Belarus (and next door in Poland)?
The Bison, known in the USA as Buffalo.

The comment about women's husky voices and Chernobyl is true.  I know so many women in Belarus as they enter their 30 are having radiation based illnesses.   Several I think because their fathers were sent to Chernobyl to clean up the disaster and brought contamination back with them to their children but also many children have lukemia.   Even some of the wildlife in the Chernobyl border area is deformed.

That's shocking to hear James so long after the disaster and all. I heard a lot of children have leukemia out that way from an elderly Russian lady I know, she is somewhat involved with a charity that deals with the Children of Chernobyl that are suffering from such issues.

Good to know you meet such wonderful folk, Trench

A lovely lady I know in Minsk has a son in his mid twenties..

He he constant issues as a result of birth defects almost certainly down to ma receiving too much radiation in her v.late teens..((

I had the pleasure of meeting a BY professor living in the UK on a Belavia flight who works with this charity.

One of my interests Chernobyl as in I work in  the field of industrial waste.  The radiation levels in parts of Belarus are very high there are hot spots you can Google.  I've met people from the Chernobyl area of Belarus and ukraine.  With men you could put it down to smoking and vodka but premature hair loss and thyroid problems are above average in the over 30s.

Seriously trench instead of sitting on a bench in Kiev go and volunteer for a week in a minsk hospice.  You will meet so many caring type ladies there and also you will be humbled and never find a day in the UK tough again.

My man!  So did I, over 25 years ago.    It wasn't a solid waste of time.

it's harsh to watch
if you get "triggered" because of some of the stuff you've seen "over there"
you may not want to
or at least watch on a much smaller screen so it doesn't have the emotional impact
I felt actual nausea and tears watching it and turned it the f&*ck off

Chernovil stretched the Soviet reality so thin
that it shattered into a thousand pieces
and only in the last few years
has it begun to reassemble
and come slowly creeping back
to the point where the collapse began

pretty soon now, y'all won't be saying the "former" Soviet Union, but just Soviet Union...
