What's the last photo? A monument to the USSR? I wonder why they keep it. Maybe because the WW2, rigth?
Even if it were "a monument to the USSR" they would keep it for sure. Belarus is probably the most sovietized part of the former USSR (in terms of people's mentality, state policy etc.). Although today's Russia is tending to the same direction.

I start to think the same. Belarus has more respect to former USSR that Russia itself. It's a bit shocking to see a clean city with excellent transport, well-manteined, and with a lot of new modern buildings and stuff... I mean, I associate "soviet" states with brutalist buildings and ugly transport, but maybe because the Soviet Union falled 25 years ago, so it was almost the rule back then.
