On 28 kilometer of the Minsk-Maladechna highway a historical and cultural complex "the Stalin Line" was inaugurated, reported Radio Liberty.

About 10 thousand people who were gathered for the ceremony saw a large dramatized show with pyrotechnic effects, planes and tanks. An unprecedented show of military equipment was deployed on the complex territory (40 hectares). The veterans invited to the inauguration of the complex received from representatives of the Belarusian Republican Union of Youth a collection of articles "Europe, bow to Stalin" recently published in Minsk.

Aliaxandr Lukashenka, who attended the ceremony, said that "the Stalin Line" should become a self-supporting complex.

Prior to the inauguration of the complex, some Belarusian historians evaluated the reanimation of "the Stalin Line" as a yet another move to rehabilitate the crimes of the Stalin era at the state level.
