  2.

  3. I am Mr. Vladimir Kalinin from Smorgon, Belarus. At the moment I am head of information centre on children and HRE in gymnasium N4. I am working for the last 4 years as researcher in the field of HRE appointed by our ministry of education. ICT is new issue to us, so I see that all of you are very experienced in this field and I could learn from you and could share our way of work, innovations in the field of HRE and just talk to you and work in one project because Belarus isolated in Europe not and we continue to live at iron curtain despite of collapse of the USSR. Very strange situation form
  4. I think we can talk a lot about taxes but government will listen to rich not to poor people. I do not understand your system capitalist one we are only moving towards it but I see that it is very wild by the nature. We got a period of wild capitalism now some people got all people's property oil gas natural resourses and have milliards of money but do not pay taxes because of corruption and millions are living in a poverty like in the region of Abramovich but he is a hero in UK and buying footbal teams and property from kings but people in his region slowly dying with gas oil and food. Berezov
  5. I think that shouldn't and some of my colleagues already mentioned that it is up to people to make any changes even if they need some decades for that. I was involved into Afagnistan war and you can see that motivation at least on the words had been nice to help Afganistan to build just and new society like in the former USSR, the same now in Irag but only leaders changed now USA is saying about democracy around the world and doing things the same as former totalitarian Soviet Union Nazist Germany. No one democracy can't not be built at the people's blood and suffering. Our history (I mean US
  6. Dear friends, We never been one monolistic society even during socialist society.One party -yes others had been destroyed by new leaders (educated and financially supported by west countries like Lenin and his company;from our archives we got an information through TV that Lenin got a lot of money to do revolution in former Russia Imperia). According to Marx your countries should be the first in this field -to change social system and extablish new rules , parties and orders but Lenin decided to be first and situation had been quite good for that at the moment. But it is another topic.Going
  7. I am not an optimist concerning Mr. Bush Presidency for the next 4 years. The point is that USA got a special declaration concerning my country just to continue our isolation in Europe and world (but who gave them such a right to be a world judge?????) but the most dangerous thing is that USA top officials are talking about the using all possible actions and activities like in Iraq to teach our top officils how to live and build democracy. So even after the collapse of the USSR our world will be divided we and they and now our people are looking for Russia just to be sure that there exist s
  8. I was in the East Germany in this period of time (in the former Soviet troops in Germany as pilot of the USSR). We were "staying" not very far from the residence of Mr.Eric Honneker just to protect him in cooperation with Germans special forces. It was nice time for me, I never could imagine that such a giant as USSR could collapsed in one day. I could say you frankly that when we were living in a different systems world was much more safe and perdictable (maybe I am wiong) but now anarchy everywhere and I feel that new wars are coming if our top politicians can't find solution and coope
  9. ; Hi John, You are right it is very interesting topic especially for us here in country in transition, I am from Belarus. We crushed socialism and are trying to build something ... nobody knows what-capitalism or again socialism or mixed society. Very sad that country is part of Europe but in full isolation at the moment and we continue to stay at iron curtain and view what are you doing in the west. But it is nothing compare with terror attacks in Russia and former USSSR -Caucasus is the palce where terrorist have homeland and could prepare their horrible actions against peaceful peopl
  10. Dear Colleagues, You are right when you say that in many of post soviet countries there are authroritarian dictatorships like in Uzbekistan, people form this country are telling horrible things that nobody will never hear. Some of them about torture, killings and human rights violations became known because UN expert on torture attended country last year. But as there are US military bases in Uzbekistan it means that this country will never appear on agenda even in UN CHR. Turkmenistan is even more horrible country with regime like during Stalin rules. Kazahstan became authoritarian as well
  11. Dear Anne, I am head of information centre on children rights education from Belarus-Vladimir Kalinin. I have HRE classes at gymnasium and we are UNESCO ASP school. We never had experiences how to work together with colleagues abroad, so if you have some interest to country in transition from communism to capitalism you are welcome! Let us start our cooperation. Have a nice weekend, Vladimir
  12. Vladimir Kalinin is from Belarus. A former soldier in the Red Army he is now a teacher in Smorgon. http://educationforum.ipbhost.com/index.php?showuser=258 My name is Vladimir and I played quite an active role during the so called cold war period. As millions of former soviet people I grew up under communist ideology and believed in it at the very beginning. Later I saw that it is false system but more than 20 years came just to understand that. I graduated at a Air Force College and was an officer in the former USSR (later I obtained a degree from University in the social sciences). For fiv
  13. Dear Colleagues, I think that European enlargement is politically motivated decision and economically west countries will get benefit because former republics of the USSR are in a deep crisis and they just crushed their system but did not build new one.all former so called people's property are in a dirty hands/just few cases -of Lithuania president ,Latvia sold all property and have not nothing in their own hands , and they are waiting for foreign help and support but some years ago they were the most strongest republics/ of mafia and former communist leaders,but now they are new busi
  14. Dear Colleagues, I am very pleased to take part in your new topic because we had lost 3 million people during WW2 and every family defeated by this war. My students are working with veterans now, writing their memories, stories, getting photos and documents from this period of time. A lot of them we placed in our school museum. I'll be happy to translate some of them and re-send to your forum. As Russians we were "sentensed by nazi" to death because belong to slavonic race but nobody and never could do so in our current history. Unfortunately, still now we are isolated in Europe, all our n
