KEW together with its partners in the European Network for Belarus have recently released a new report titled: “Memory in Belarusian policies towards Germany and Poland”
The report is co-authored by Felix Ackermann, Ihar Melnikau and Tomasz Błaszczak
The editor of the report is Adam Reichardt (editor in chief of New Eastern Europe)
In this paper, our authors explore the current state of Belarusian historical and memory policies and the role that they play especially in the last several years, including in Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine. The research finds that the current Belarusian historical memory policy is fragmented, incoherent and aimed at supporting the regime. At the same time, Russian influence on Belarusian historical policy has gained significant momentum since 2020 and especially since 2022 – imposing its imperial view of history on Belarus.
