The VIII Diplomatic Seminar of the Gorchakov Fund continues its work in Belarus.  During the second day of the research and educational program, its participants visited the Memorial Complex “Brest Hero-Fortress”. After a meeting with Director of the complex Grigory Bysyuk and a tour around the museum, the participants laid flowers to the main monument of the complex – a sculpture of a solider and a standard.


Then the guests of the seminar visited Russian Center of Science and Culture in Brest. Director of the center and Vice Chancellor of the General Consulate of Russia in Brest Yelena Maslova told about major areas of work of the center, projects and events.


The participants watched a documentary shot by employees of the Center telling about a heroic deed of the Soviet army and civilians – defenders of Brest Fortress in 1941.
