25 years ago, Belarus, Russia and Ukraine signed the Belavezha Accords, an agreement which heralded the dissolution of the Soviet ‘Evil Empire’ and the emerging of fifteen independent states. Belsat TV has come into possession of some exclusive photos of the day.

The agreement put an end to the 69-year history of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics which seemed to be a tough and invincible power. interestingly, the demise of the USSR as a subject of international law and geopolitical reality was declared by the leaders of the same Soviet republics which established it in 1922.

Thanks in large part to the three signatories of the Accords, the USSR broke up peacefully: there was no bloody repartition of the Soviet legacy.

The authors of the film ‘Communist Party is Serfdom of the Soviet Union’ reveals the facts of Soviet history that show the way of building a powerful and grim system of total suppression of a human being.
