Jule 3rd in Transatlantic History

Dear Friends,

This Friday again I will direct your attention to a historical event(s) related to the transatlantic relations that happened on the same date.

July 3rd is Independence Day in Belarus. 65 years ago on this date the city of Minsk and the capital of present-day Belarus is liberated from Nazi occupation by the Soviet troops.

Additionally, on July 3rd 1979, the US President Jimmy Carter signs the first directive for secret aid to the opponents of the pro-Soviet regime in Kabul.
