Belaruskaya Dumka magazine hailed for great contribution to Belarusian statehood

MINSK, 24 May (BelTA) – The Belaruskaya Dumka Magazine has been contributing to the Belarusian statehood since its very foundation, First Deputy Head of the Belarus President Administration Maksim Ryzhenkov said at the event to celebrate the 95th anniversary of the socio-political and popular science magazine Belaruskaya Dumka, BelTA has learned.

The Belarusian sovereign state has celebrated 25 years, and Belaruskaya Dumka is turning 95. Throughout its history, this publication has been building the foundation of the Belarusian statehood, promoting cultural and scientific journalism,” Maksim Ryzhenkov said.

The editorial office has always had talented journalists and writers who have been working hard to give the magazine a modern feel, Maksim Ryzhenkov said. Despite the abundance of periodicals and media outlets, the magazine firmly holds its position as the most respected publication which gives voice to young budding scientists, he said.

Maksim Ryzhenkov read out the greetings from Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko to the editorial office of the magazine.

The socio-political and popular science magazine Belaruskaya Dumka turned 95 on 6 May. The starting point of its history was 6 May 1922 when the Presidium of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the BSSR adopted a decree on the theoretical and political journal Vperyod in Minsk. As evidenced by the archival materials, that magazine had just 11 issues which received positive feedback on the pages of the Moscow journal “Krasnaya Pechat”.

The magazine boasts a rich history. Its contemporary history started in November 1991 when Belaruskaya Dumka was registered as a magazine of the research institute of the Belarusian Economy Ministry.

The magazine received further support. On 9 November 1995 the President Administration became the founder of the magazine. In 1996 the magazine acquired the status of a scientific, theoretic and general interest publication, well-known among scientists and creators.

After making part of BelTA news agency in 2007, the magazine has preserved its consistency and traditions and continued to cover the most relevant issues of the country.

Today, the magazine is a scientific publication, recommended by the supreme certification commission for publishing the results of research in philosophy, history, politics, philology, economics, and sociology.

The magazine discusses the ways of further improvement of the Belarusian development model and also works out recommendations for addressing the country’s most pressing economic and social issues.

The magazine is a many-time winner of the national print media competition Zolotaya Litera (Golden Letter).
