Belarus plans to open a monument potatoes. In the culture department of the Minsk regional executive committee of the city Zaslaul reported that the memorial sign in honor of "Bulba" is intended to perpetuate the special attitude of Belarusians to the main national product.

Monument potatoes may appear in one of the central squares Zaslaul before the end of 2007. At this point, will be completed work on the territory, the design, manufacture and installation of a memorial plaque dedicated to "Bulba". The initiative for the monument was made by the newspaper "Respublika", and in the Minsk regional executive committee is currently preparing a decision about how to install a memorial sign, to be held with the Ministry of Culture of Belarus and Minsk Regional Executive Committee, writes the Telegraph.

Monument planned to put the main vegetables in the past. In 2005, information was received that the bronze tuber settle in the center of Minsk. Authors of the idea wanted to show how the Belarusians are proud of the product. The project initiator was the same - the newspaper "Respublika". Then the project was never implemented, because, according to some reports, between honorary sponsor and implementer of any friction. One of the reasons then allegedly was that "bulb" turned out not monumental - 130 centimeters in height and 90 in width.
