Modern Belarusian Komsomol badge


Recommended Posts

This is a badge of membership in the 'Беларускі Рэспубліканскі Саюз Моладзі' The Belarusian Republican Youth movement. Heirs of the Komsomol, who still have the Orders of Lenin and the Red Banner on their flags etc.

Indeed Christian. The Belarusian state motto at the moment is "The State for the People!"

Lukashenko has no party as he stood as an independent candidate in 1994. Things like the All Belarus People's Assembly and the frequent use of referenda mean that Belarus actually involves the people as part of the state machinery instead of having a ruling party as its guide. Added to this Lukashenko recently passed a bill on the 'de-beuracratisation' of the state machinery, in an attempt to avoid the creation of a ruling elite, rank and privellage.

But politics aside, the BRSM is indeed a republican movement as opposed to a party political one.

Dear Belaruski,

well, and the "State for the People" fits to the term "social state" in the constitution of Belarus :D .

Socialism as a "republican movement" sounds very interesting.

When will your Belarus-book be published?

I think, that you will sell some copies among GMIC-members ;) .

Best regards :beer:
