Soviet Union was the empire which has admitted such monstrous crimes as resettlement of the Crimean Tatars, and to exist further the USSR it was impossible. It on air of Russian «5 channel» were declared Belovezhsky agreements from Belarus by Stanislav Shushkevich. «Resettlement of the Crimean Tatar people and the other people — same is monstrous!» — he was indignant.
«It was the empire. Belarus it was a colony. Belarus became a part of Russia after the third section of Poland in 1794, and before was not a part of Russia. It was won from time to time, and then again came back in Grand duchy Lithuanian», — Shushkevich confirms. «Really it was possible to continue for such power to exist», — he has explained the motives.
