The Belarusian state has its flag in the heart, while the opposition keeps its in the pocket, Director General of the Belarusian news agency BelTA Irina Akulovich made the comparison as she opened BelTA’s exhibition Parallel Worlds in the Business and Cultural Center of the Belarusian Embassy in Russia in Moscow on 16 May, BelTA has learned.

Irina Akulovich drew the audience's attention to one of the exhibition posters. “This is what was going on in Minsk some 20 years ago and also the recent events and what the Belarusian opposition wanted: no integration. The only thing that the Belarusian opposition wanted with their flag and emblem was no union with Russia. Because no one in the West needs such a union. And because the Belarusian opposition is financed by the West,” she stated.

The exhibition also touches on the topic of the Chernobyl tragedy. “All the opposition did was to rally in the streets for years, calling it Chernobyl Way. All these years the state invested billions to resettle and treat people, to withdraw land from agricultural use and then, making sure it is safe, to put it back in use, to provide children with free meals. Every poster, every topic presents this analysis - the actions of the state and the actions of the opposition,” Irina Akulovich said.

The Parallel Worlds project features 18 posters which depict the footage from the news agency's archives and documents of the Belarusian State Archive of Cine, Photo and Audio Records. The exhibition was first showcased on the viewing platform of the National Library. The exhibition was visited by more than 8,000 people in a span of five days. Then, the project was on display at Minsk Automobile Plant, Belarusian State University, the Presidential Library of Belarus, and Stolitsa Shopping Mall. Now the exhibition is on show in Russia.
