In the evening of 12 March the Haspoda exhibition of the well-known Belarusian artist Ryhor Sitnitsa was opened at the National art museum of Belarus. Recently Sitnitsa turned 50. The artist says that he dedicates this exhibition not to his own jubilee, but to another great date, the 90th anniversary of declaration of the Belarusian People’s Republic.

However, the state censorship spoiled even this artistic event. The museum administration demanded from Sitnitsa to urgently remove the Rubon painting where the national white-red-white flag can be seen.
