Denomination. Memo

As I have said, from July 1, Belarus introduces new notes and coins into circulation. This reminder will help you cope with the difficulties of translation of old banknotes with new ones. I recall that until January 1, 2017, all banks and shops in the country will take the old bills and new.

Special application for phones have been developed in Belarus. If you are going to visit my country during the transitional period (from 1 July 2016 to 31 December 2016), I recommend you install this application to simplify the work with new and old bills.

Happy Victory Day!

On the eve of the 71st anniversary since the Great Victory day I would like to extend my greetings to everyone who did their best to near that very moment: the veterans to have shed their blood on the battlefields, the workers of the rear who toiled to produce the battle-front supplies. I bend my knees to honor those participants of the dreadful war who are no longer with us today.

Noone is forgotten, nothing is forgotten! Happy Victory Day!

Vote for Ivan)

Okay, I don't know what to write in this post.//
It occurs to me the first time. Singer from Belarus this year was in the center of the scandal all the time. As it turned out, this was carefully directed by Victor Drobysh (produser). I do not doubt)) Thus, the Belarusian singer Ivan will appear on the Eurovision stage naked (what???) and together with the wolves (OMG!!). Wolves and naked singer are just a hologram. Oops. Fans of the singer, probably disappointed, but I'm not.
I like the chorus only in the song "Help you fly". Maybe the performance on the stage would be the best? You can watch the video of the second rehearsal of Ivan on the Eurovision stage.


And a bonus. I found some weird videos on YouTube. On my opinion Ivan looks like an idiot. Maybe you will have a different opinion?



In any case, let's look at the performance of Ivan in the second semifinal. Belarus stands at number 5. If you enjoy the performance of Ivan vote for Belarus!

During the next five years–from 1 January 2017 through 31 December 2021–the currency units of the 2000 series will be exchanged for the currency units of the 2009 series in any sum without restriction and charging commission, after which time the 2000 series will be deemed invalid and demonetized.
