Springs… As this word are well-known. Once they flew on all our ground, swilled in heat sun burnt roadside scythe men on hay makings, shepherds on a pasture, from them took water for domestic needs. They did not dry up neither during a summer drought, nor in a winter icy cold when the frost held down all around. Because, a mother - the ground swilled them. But then came melioratories, and did not become of springs. The grounds melioratories, they asserted, that improve the nature, and actually ruined it. Also have ruined.
But are also others springs. Springs of our spirituality, consciousness, morals, comprehension of the origin, a reality to the fatherly ground, the national validity. And here came with ruthless ideological plough melioratories - melioratories of souls human, melioratories of our historical memory, our culture, language, traditions. They competed among themselves what more to destroy relics, the belarussian schools, to alter history on the appetite, to impose the pseudo-culture, to replace noble bases of human, national morals with platitude, brutality, a devastation of souls. And here melioratories of spirituality, as well as melioratories of the grounds, much that have reached.
Today there was a hard problem - to revive lost for decades of spiritual land improvement. Hard - as to revive, build much more hardly than to destroy. Besides even at strong counteraction corresponding, authority of having forces, and after many decades of pipe dream of people. But there is no eternal winter, there is no eternal night. Above ours ground the spring, spring of hopes and insuperable aspiration to the best share of native edge, wakes up. And night, not wishing that, is compelled to recede under an impact of light. Restoration of everything that revival of is lost, that ancestors for us have created during many centuries. Construction of an independent political, economic and cultural life of the belarussian state. Its connection to world commonwealth of independent free peoples as equal with equal, free with free - it is demanded with our time, our future. Independent democratic Belarus is the purpose of activity and the newspaper "Belaruskaja Krynitsa" which under an iron dam of the melioratories of spirituality not is animated a lot of time.
Its first number under name "Krynitsa" has left in Petrograd on October, 8 (21) 1917 - during rough events in the Russian power, this dark prison of peoples, for gates of which belarussian people was also. In 1918 the third number of the newspaper has left in Minsk. And since September, 7, 1919 it began to be issued in Vilnius and since 1925 under the name "Belaruskaja Krynitsa". On its pages activity of the Belarussian Christian Democracy, a life of belarussian people in conditions of Poland of that time, struggle of belarussian people for the best share for the rights, was shined. Materials of the newspaper did not like the Polish authorities and consequently many numbers of the newspaper left with white blemishes. 58 numbers of the newspaper have been confiscated; many times authorities stopped its output. On July, 12, 1940 at that time already Lithuanian Soviet authority has forbidden the edition of the newspaper. On 768 numbers it has stopped the existence. But in half-centuries in February 1991 from 769 numbers "Belaruskaja Krynitsa" it has been restored and left in Minsk till 1997. This time it has been closed by already belarussian authority. With May, 2006 "Belaruskaja Krynitsa" begins the existence in an electronic kind and will use the Belarussian, Russian and English languages. And all of us, members of edition and readers, speak it: good luck "Belaruskaja Krynitsa" to work on revival of our Fatherland!
