The rest of these are mostly jokes. Yakub Kolas was a famous Belarus poet - Jacob's Ear seems like an insult.

In any case, I think it's well-established that this Belarussian/Belarusian (both are acceptable in English usage, by the way) Latin is a total joke and most folks in Belarus understand it. Just look at the comments in the Onliner forum - http://realt.onliner.by/2013/08/28/g...skie-nazvaniya - nothing positive about it.

Probably not a good idea to post a map that says "Republic of White Russia" then, is it?

as I said above this map has very direct translation made as a joke of such kind of people who call our country BelaruSSia and so on. so I don't think I should comment this translation)
And Jakub Kolas' reputation isn't weak to be insulted by such jokes)

Most people think that Holland and the Netherlands are the same names what doesn't make them equal to the Dutch or just well-educated people. The same with Belarus(s)ian

yep, i've read them and the first ones are mostly positive and express the main reason for hating :

Vartal, напишите, наверно админу. Например, - http://www.skyscrapercity.com/member.php?u=238154

Concerning new station Malinaŭka.



the white on the left track is the only part of the tunnel to be constructed. It's about 190 meters but the earliest day to be finished is february 2014





the station is scheduled to be opened in May 2014 , but so far it's not very likely until some extra-force is used on the site

May 2014 shouldn't be a problem if the metro utilizes a few "Subbotnik"s to force the college students out of the dorms and into the construction site.

well, of course students' work can be beneficial, but if we talk about metro construction they won't be able to do the majority of tasks like concreting, electrification, decoration etc. They will be helpful with washing, cleaning, carrying materials, but it's not a severe part of the whole construction. Metro needs specialists, only students won't resolve the problem

Well, it's actually doesn't make a lot of difference - subway construction are high-specialised activity that require qualified labor, so students was used only for cleaning and decorating station before the opening ceremony.

Quasi-forced child labor on Minsk metro construction


Child laborers on their way to the metro.



Quote:
«Добровольно пришли или принудительно?» — спрашиваем у ребят.

«Добровольно!.. Принудительно!..» — откликается толпа. Старший в группе поясняет: никого не заставляли, всем интересно побывать на стройке и посмотреть на метро «изнутри».
Translation:
Quote:
"Did you come willingly or were you forced" we ask the children.

"Willingly forced," the crowd answers. The oldest in the group explains: no one was required to come, everyone was interested in visiting the construction site and seeing the metro "from the inside."

Well if I have to be honest, I would certainly go on metro construction in particular if I was there, but that is just me
Yeah it is kind of strange to do this in todays times, plus how effective can these kids be.

the main reason for this is the lack of quilified labourers. Compered to all european countries with 10-20% rate of unemployment, Belarus suffers from overemployment, so there're almoust no available extra labour resourses to hire for the construction. that's why the government try to use students at least for some minor work.

There are exist groups of Metro fans in Moscow and other Russian cities. I think some of them will be glad to take part in such kind of works in order to know situation with readiness of stations and to make photo reports for their forums/blogs.

Tracklaying begins this week on the outbound tunnel from Petrovshchina to Malinovka. Inbound tracks have been installed. Workers are employed in 2 or 3 shifts at the Malinovka station site. More than 20 plasterers and tilers are working at the new station. Right now 520 people in total are employed on subway construction. So far they have not been able to do 3 shifts or work through the weekend.

Article dated 12.09.13 at Agenstvo Minsk-Novosti bylined Svetlana Frolenkova gives 05.2014 opening date.

And some more news from yesterday, 09.12.2013

Demolition work on the 3rd line is already underway. Not far ago conception of first 7 stations was approved by Minsk metro, and just recently conception of the first stage of the line was approved by state construction supervisory institution(don't know which one exactly).

The first stage consists of 4 stations - Jubiliejnaja plošča(interchange with line 2) - Plošča Franciška Bohuševiča - Vakzalnaja(interchange with line 1) - Kavalskaja Slabada, and it's still planned to be opened in 2017.

12 buildings are to be demolished in order to make way for the construction, 6 of which have already been demolished. BELTA says that preparation on Vakzalnaja is about to start with transfering of some utilities

As well it's still declared that the 3rd line will provide driveless service and you can see PSD on the renders. If this really happens, Minsk metro will be 2nd In CEE after Budapest's one or as well 2nd in ex-USSR states after Baku metro(plans of driveless service in Omsk seems to be unreal with current funding)

check out the full article on BELTA

Concrete works on Malinaŭka are finished, now decorating started

article and video from the station is here

at 2:50-3:00 you may notice potentially new renders of the station. So far they haven't been published officially, so it could be just some vision, not the actual designs
