A proposal to rename Lenin square to Haretski square in Horki

The Lenin monument has been already demounted in the central square of Horki town. Opinions of the district centre residents on its renaming are being collected now.

Officials say the main square will change its face completely prior to the Dazhynki harvest festival. Elements of the Belarusian national ornament will appear in the square, Radio Liberty reports.

“We have been trying to preserve Haretski’s house for a long time. The officials were telling us there wasn’t enough money to preserve or repair it. We now have a perfect and an inexpensive opportunity to memorialize Maksim Haretski in Horki – we have a central square with no name. We don’t need big money to rename Lenin square to Haretski square. In Horki, there is a square named after the Soviet hero Yakubouski that symbolizes the Soviet epoch of the Belarusian history, and there would also be Haretski square that would symbolize the Belarusian national history and the spiritual revival. These two squares are connected by the central street. This is very symbolic. This road conciliates the different sides of the Belarusian history”, journalist Illa Zaranok, activist of the Movement For Freedom (MFF), grounds the proposal to rename Lenin square.

The District Executive Committee will determine the name for Horki central square late in August.

Meanwhile, the house where Haretski lived awaits demolition. Not all of its residents left it as yet. A road will be built in the place of the house to the location where main events of the harvest festival will take place.
