The Belarusian Ministry of Internal Affairs added the slogan “Long live Belarus” and the white-red-white flag to the list of Nazi symbols.

The Ministry of Internal Affairs of Belarus has updated the list of Nazi symbols and paraphernalia and Nazi organizations. Now it includes the exclamation “Long live Belarus”, accompanied by a raising of the right hand with a straightened palm, as well as the recall “Long live”. This exclamation, as stated in a document published on the National Legal Portal, means “a collaborationist greeting and is a symbol of the 13th Belarusian police battalion under the SD and the 30th grenadier (infantry) division of the Waffen-SS (Russian No. 2, it is also - Belarusian No. 1) on a par with the Nazi party greeting "Heil Hitler"..."

In addition, the white-red-white flag (“BCHB”) was included in the list of extremist paraphernalia, which, by the way, was the state flag twice in the history of Belarus: in 1918 it served as a symbol of the Belarusian People’s Republic for several months, and also from 1991 to 1995 after the collapse of the USSR and the proclamation of Belarus as an independent state was its state flag, until the red-green flag of "Soviet Belarus" returned with the filing of Lukashenka. Some historians consider "BCHB" to be national and refer to the symbols of the struggle for the state independence of the country.

Evening Telegram journalists also note that before the last update, there were 10 items in the published list of Nazi symbols, and after that it immediately became 52!
