The former senator and writer Mikalai Charhinets has commented on the fact that a deputy contender Yauhen Lipkovich and his accomplices made a bonfire of his books in Sevastopol Park in Minsk on Sunday. “I have never heard of this deputy contender, - claimed Mikalai Charhinets in an interview with ERB. – However, he is guaranteed to be rejected by electors when they get to know about the incident. Nevertheless, my books have always been among the most read ones”.

According to the writer, if the blogger felt warm near the bonfire of his books, his heart will not be warmed by the action. At the same time, Charhinets is not going to sue Lipkovich for “the barbarous act”.

Let us remind you that participants of “a belles-letters action” “Let’s protect the Belarusian state system from extremism” burnt books written by Mikalai Charhinets in Minsk Sevastopol park on Sunday. source : http://euroradio.fm/en/charhinets-not-sue-lipkovich-barbarous-act

He made the statement during his press-conference on January 3, 2008.

M. Charhinets showed a large pile of printouts from the Internet and copies of publications, where journalists cited different parts of the article.

The Council of Morality led by chairman of the Union of Writers of Belarus plans to give more attention to organizers of concerts of such bands like Marilyn Manson.

The band, which is considered to be one of the most scandalous groups of nowadays, is expected to play a gig at Minsk's Palace of Sport on December 22. This is the day of apocalypse according to the Mayan calender, which possibly became a reason for the increased attention of elderly guardians of morality. They have been trying to ban the concert since summer, Narodnaya Volya newspaper reports.

“I have seen too many cruel murders, such as rapes and murders of 4-5 year-old girls, corpse dissections,” Charhinets said. “I would keep [this punishment] for this category. If we won’t response to such crimes harshly, they would grow. I won’t use capital punishment to any economic crimes… I would keep it only for one crime, for abuse and cruel murders of children, as not a single mother would find a justification to a murderer”.
