Photo fact: Potemkin houses in Minsk

12:10, — Society

What wasn't repaired was just drawn.

Some houses in the centre of the Belarusian capital were repaired in a simple and cheap way. They were covered with huge banners depicting repaired walls so that they look new from a distance.

Photos demonstrating the ingenuity of the Minsk authorities were posted on Facebook by activist Dzmitry Kavalhim.

Potemkin houses are now in Minsk. This excellent work (bushes are the most admirable) can be found in Rosa Luxemburg Street opposite the luxurious hotel, which was opened lately by Kolia's father [Lukashenka], he writes.

Houses in Zhlobin were lately repaired in the same way.
