The summer examination session has started at Kupala University
Exams are conducted in person, mainly in writing, in the University's classrooms. All necessary sanitary and epidemiological requirements are met.
Thus, when drawing up the schedule, the need for sanitary treatment of classrooms and minimizing the number of students who are simultaneously in the buildings is taken into account.
In addition, the number of seats in the classrooms where exams are held exceeds the number of students in the group by at least twice. If necessary, the groups are divided into subgroups, for which the exam is held on the same day, but at different times. Sanitary and epidemiological requirements are met: a distance of at least 1.5 meters, the use of personal protective equipment – masks and gloves.
It should be noted that students who are on self-isolation, in the presence of a supporting document on an individual basis on their application, are given the opportunity to pass the exam using information and communication technologies with mandatory visualization. The exam with the use of ICT is conducted in oral form with video recording. If there is a disability sheet, the student's current certification is postponed to September.
The summer examination session for full-time and evening students will end on June 17. On June 18, state examinations and defense of theses and master's theses will begin. For part-time students, exams and tests have been postponed to September

New virus protection devices for doctors and the public are being developed at Yanka Kupala State University of Science and Technology Park
The team of resident company of Technopark, LLC "LIRAandCo" developed its own strategy against the proliferation of coronavirus.
At this stage, all the efforts of the company's representatives are aimed at providing the necessary means of protection to the region's doctors.
– We have studied how they work very carefully, in what conditions they work, what means of protection they need, and we offered our solutions, - the head of the company Pavel Krivenko said. – So, we suggested that doctors use contactless filters as protection instead of standard respirators, which perform their task no less effectively, but are more convenient. Our company has already manufactured and delivered more than 300 contactless filters to medical institutions in the region, as well as about 200 protective suits for doctors. I must say that we have developed and implemented all this in just two weeks and are now continuing to work on finding new solutions.
In the near future, LLC "LIRAandCo" plans to significantly increase the production of protective equipment for doctors and produce about 100 closed suits and 200 contactless filters every day to meet the existing needs of medical institutions in the region. In addition, representatives of the resident company of Yanka Kupala State University Science and Technology Park are constantly working to find new solutions that will help improve the efficiency of contactless filters and closed suits, as well as develop and gradually introduce new protection devices for doctors and the public.
– We try to rationally use the supplies available to us, so, first of all, we are focused on fulfilling the requests of doctors, - Pavel Krivenko said. – But we are already ready to offer some interesting solutions for the population. For example, we produce a keychain with the function of a hand – a simple device that allows you to open a door without touching it with your hand, or press a button in an elevator, dial a code in an ATM.
At the moment, representatives of the company are introducing another invention into production – an air blower. It is a device for flow filtration of air from physical and biological particles, which feeds the purified gas mixture under pressure both to the contactless filter or suit, and to the premises. Developers are also thinking about improving the protective suit, namely, how to make the suit not only protect the doctor from infection, but also to make it comfortable to work for many hours.
Representatives of the company note that they keep in touch with all medical institutions in the region, continue to study their requests, which change depending on how the situation with the spread of coronavirus in the country develops. And according to this information, they make certain adjustments to their devices and developments every day. Yesterday's decisions may no longer be relevant today. But thanks to the powerful material and technical base of the Technopark, the creative teams of resident companies have the opportunity to make decisions quickly and work effectively.

"The Great Patriotic War in the fate of employees of the Yanka Kupala State University of Grodno": Evgeny Dalidovich
Evgeny Nikolaevich Dalidovich was born on May 20, 1931 in the village of Kornichee, Gressky district, Minsk region.
From May 1943 to June 1945, Yevgeny Dalidovich was a partisan liaison-scout at N. A. Schors unit of the 3rd Minsk partisan brigade named after S. M. Budenny. He was awarded the Order of the Patriotic War of the 2nd degree, medals "For Impeccable Service" of the 1st, 2nd, 3rd degrees.
From 1988 to 2003, Yevgeny Nikolayevich Dalidovich worked as a lecturer in the Department of Criminal Law, Process and Criminalistics, was the head of the educational laboratory of technical and forensic tools, deputy dean for academic affairs at the Yanka Kupala State University of Grodno.
From the memories:
“My childhood was partisan. Throughout the war, together with my family, we were in the zone of action of the partisan movement in the Pukhovichi, Gres, Slutsky, Starodorozhsky and Kopyl regions. My father knew blacksmithing. In early 1942, the partisans were given the task of organizing an weapon manufactory. Tackling such a difficult matter was entrusted to Nikolai Dalidovich, my father. The location of the workshop was chosen on the outskirts of the village Blaschitniki-1 of the Seletsky village council, now the Pukhovichi district. At the edge of the forest, under the old branchy linden, in the cellar, they had to deploy work. Secretly from the occupation authorities, under cover of night, my father and elder brother Georgy took out blacksmith tools on horse-drawn carts from the Pukhovichi and Pokryshevskaya MTS.
Soon the first weapon arrived, which required a thorough repair, since it was most often taken out of water bodies. They worked day and night.
After that I learned how to make mines and other explosive devices for rail warfare, which were also made in a disguised weapons workshop. Also I helped my father to horseshue.
I remember how in the late summer of 1943 my father worked especially hard, literally falling from his feet from fatigue. The task was to chain more than a hundred homemade saddles for partisans. A hot hearth was installed in the workshop, where it was continuously required to supply charcoal made from solid wood chocks in a specially excavated funnel. The responsibility to keep the hearth hot, as well as lugs was laid on me. As I found out later, saddles were fettered for the 12th Stalin Cavalry Brigade, commanded by Hero of the Soviet Union Vladimir Tikhomirov.
From May 1943 until the expulsion of the German invaders from our land, I was a liaison at N. A. Schors unit of the 3rd Minsk partisan brigade named after S. M. Budenny. I delivered food and water to the partisan units in combat operations, and carried out other orders from the command. I took the partisans who were wounded and suffering from typhus to a hospital in the village of Zarechye, ferrying them on a ferry across the Ptich River.
... In July 1944, a father from a partisan detachment was called up to the front, where he died in battle in Poland. This was the worst news that I had to go through in my entire life. ”
From the book "The Great Patriotic War in the Fates of the Employees of Yanka Kupala StateUniversity", author-compiler - Andrey Getsevich.

Here, in the summer of 1941, in the tract of Pyshki, the summer camp of the Brest District School of the younger commanding officers of the border troops of People's Commissariat of Internal Affairs was located.
