Pas de deux with a frying pan — Minsk Courier Newspaper
Is it easy to fry potatoes, meatballs, bake pies, inhale intoxicating garlic and onion aromas, but eat nothing and just contemplate how your family gobbles it all up on both cheeks? Only a ballerina can endure such a thing
Olga Serko started ballet at the age of four. Not that she was very eager for this art form. It’s just that her mother showed her to specialists, and they recognized that the girl has all the necessary inclinations. In addition, her father was a professional dancer. She was accepted into a children’s dance group, and at the age of 10 she entered the Minsk Choreographic School.
— I was fascinated by music, beauty and plasticity of movements, — Olga Yurievna admits. “But at the school, I quickly realized what hard labor it was: you have to work from morning to night, you have to forbid yourself a lot. And literally mock your body, because positions with inverted feet, stretch marks, back bends are unnatural for a person. No wonder Faina Ranevskaya called the ballet hard labor in flowers.
After graduating from college, Olga came to the Belarusian State Academic Musical Theatre. She danced diverse roles in Giselle, Don Quixote, Mephisto. Remarkably played the main role in the Carmen Suite. Now the ballet soloist, leading stage master Olga Serko is busy in three performances: “A Thousand and One Nights”, “Cleopatra” and “Swan Lake”. However, he does not forget about the duties of the mistress of the house. She is very happily married to her beloved husband Alexander, who helps her in everything.
— Let’s go fishing, — says the ballerina. I share my husband’s hobby. And I can fish just as well as him. I even pulled out a big pike once. Our son Dima also likes to go fishing. We usually cook with my husband.
Fish soup, baked, stewed and stuffed fish is a favorite food of the Serko family. Indo-outka dishes also often appear on the table.
“My mother-in-law raises the bird,” explains Olga. – Indo is less fat than ordinary homemade. The meat is very tasty, dietary, has no specific smell and taste. Dishes are simply amazing.
In addition, the ballerina’s diet contains a lot of vegetables and fruits, juices. And for dinner – exclusively a glass of kefir. However, she has been addicted to fried potatoes and homemade pies since childhood. And sometimes he allows himself small holidays of the stomach.
“In order to quickly lose weight later, I resort to a strict diet,” the artist admits. – For three days I have been sitting on one buckwheat boiled in water without salt. And of course, without oil and other additives. But four kilos immediately as if it had never happened!
Low calorie sandwich (serves 4)
Take 4 Chinese cabbage leaves. Put the thinnest piece of beef ham on each. Top with a slice of fresh cucumber. Then a thin layer of cheese, again a cucumber and a sprig of greens. You can add a little minced garlic. Wrap everything in a cabbage leaf. And no bread or loaf!
Zucchini stew (serves 2)
300 g zucchini, peeled, cut into cubes and added 2 tsp. vegetable oil, fry over medium heat for 5-7 minutes until soft. Peel and chop 1 onion, cut 1 tomato into slices. Fry the chopped onion separately with 1 tbsp. l. oil for 5 minutes until transparent. Put chopped tomatoes there and fry for another 7 minutes. Disassemble 100 g of cauliflower into inflorescences. Put fried zucchini and onions with tomatoes in a saucepan, add 60 g of green peas, cauliflower, salt, season with 140 g of medium-fat sour cream and simmer for 5-10 minutes. Sprinkle the stew with herbs before serving.
Braised turkey (3-4 portions)
Divide the turkey meat (about 1.5 kg) into portions and be sure to soak in cold water for about an hour. Peel and rinse 1 carrot and 2 onions. Grate carrots on a coarse grater. Onion cut into cubes. Pour 100-150 g of sunflower or olive oil into the multicooker bowl and heat it well. Fry the meat until golden brown for 10-12 minutes. Then pour in some water and simmer for another 15 minutes. Then add onions and carrots and fry it all for 5 minutes. Then pour enough water into the slow cooker so that the meat is completely covered. Salt and pepper to taste. Set the extinguishing mode to 1.5 hours. If there is no slow cooker, you can cook on the stove. At the end of cooking, put 2-3 sprigs of parsley. As a side dish, mashed potatoes, rice or vegetable salad are suitable.
Mixed fish hodgepodge (4 servings)
To prepare the broth, take 2 liters of water, fish head and bones from fresh salmon and boil them for 15-20 minutes. At the end, dip 200 g of smoked pink salmon into the broth for 2-3 minutes to give a special taste. After that, remove the bones and head with a slotted spoon and discard. Take out the pink salmon for a while. In the meantime, the fish broth is being cooked, prepare the passerovka for the hodgepodge. Chop 250 g of onion into thin half rings, cut the same amount of pickled (not pickled!) cucumbers into strips. Fry the onion for 10 minutes until golden brown. Add pickled cucumbers to it and simmer for 5 minutes. Then put there 1 tbsp. l. tomato paste, stir and cook for another 10 minutes. In the process of browning, gradually add a glass of cucumber pickle, stirring the mass occasionally. Prepare the pink salmon taken out of the broth: free from stones and cut into strips. Cut 200 g of fresh salmon and mackerel meat into large pieces. Boil them in the broth for 15-20 minutes. Start assembling the hodgepodge. Add pink salmon to a saucepan with broth and mix lightly, put onions and cucumbers in the same place. Put in the oven, bring the hodgepodge to a boil and remove immediately. Pour into bowls, add 1 tbsp. l. sour cream, 2-3 olives and the same amount of olives, garnish with lemon slices and sprigs of greens.
Cottage cheese pastry with cabbage
First prepare the filling. Chop half a head of cabbage, salt and stew with spices in vegetable oil. For the dough, mash 400 g of cottage cheese with a fork, beat in 2 eggs, stir. Add just under 1 tsp. salt, the same amount of sugar and soda slaked with vinegar. Pour into the mixture 2 tbsp. l. sunflower oil and gradually add 2.5 cups of flour. Knead the dough (it should not stick to your hands). Divide the dough into pieces and roll out the cakes. Put the filling in each and form pies. They can be fried on both sides until golden brown in a frying pan in oil. A less calorie option is to bake in the oven, which is also very tasty.

Poland accuses the Soviet Union of unleashing World War II to hide its own collusion with Hitler?
Author: Evgeniy VLADIMIROV
History teacher from Brest Sergei Serko conducts his own investigation of the events of 1939. He spoke about his findings at an international conference in Moscow, as well as in an interview with our website
Photo: September 1, 1939. German invasion of Poland
At the end of last year, at the suggestion of Vladimir Putin, the events of the beginning of World War II and the previous ones were widely discussed in Russia, Belarus, and throughout Europe. Who is responsible for this global catastrophe, how true is the version of the collusion between the Soviet Union and Germany and the division of Poland? The Russian president, confirming his words with declassified archival documents, showed that there was no conspiracy. And that it was Poland that tried to take part in the division of Europe and paid the price for it.
However, this could be proved even without secret documents. That’s what the history teacher of the 18th school of Brest Sergei Serko did. After the anniversary of the outbreak of World War II, when European leaders openly accused the USSR of aggression, he studied open documents and memoirs of participants in those events and came to an unequivocal conclusion: there was nothing in the actions of the Red Army that did not fit into the framework of the then international rights.
Last November, a month before the summit in St. Petersburg, where Vladimir Putin shared the results of his research with colleagues, Sergey Serko spoke in Moscow at the international youth conference “World War II: Truth for Peace,” organized by the Youth Parliament under the State Duma RF. The participants in the discussion remember his report to this day.
– Sergey, why did you decide to delve into the events of 1939?
– I am a graduate of the Faculty of History of the Brest State University named after A. S. Pushkin, I have long been engaged in the history of Belarus, Russia, Ukraine and the Slavic peoples in general. The beginning of the Second World War is the central event of the twentieth century, that time is still widely discussed. For Brest, where I live, September 1939 is a fateful time.

– That is, you decided to prove that there was nothing criminal in the actions of the USSR, whose army entered the territory that was considered Polish on September 17?
– I set a broader task: I wanted to “get to the bottom” of the truth and came to the conclusion that there was nothing illegal in the actions of the Soviet Union, not only from the point of view of a modern person, but also from the position of Western European politicians of that time, who saw everything with their own eyes.
Such, for example, is the position of Winston Churchill, who very soon became Prime Minister of Great Britain. Even the Polish commander-in-chief Edward Rydz-Smigly ordered not to engage in battle with the Red Army, but to negotiate and retreat …
– Even so?
– Exactly. By the time the Red Army crossed the Soviet-Polish border, German troops had already defeated the main forces of the Polish army. The remnants of the Polish units retreated to Warsaw, and the Polish government, together with the gold reserves, was already in the area of the Romanian border. Guderian’s motorized division entered Brest, the question was whether all of Western Belarus and Western Ukraine would be occupied by German troops or the USSR would take them under its control. The de facto Polish state no longer existed on 17 September. On this day, the commander-in-chief of the Polish army, Rydz-Smigly, issued an order: to fight with the German army, and not to conduct military operations against the Red Army, to withdraw from Western Belarus and Western Ukraine towards ethnic Poland.
– Why did he give such an order?
– Because then it was clear to everyone that, firstly, the aggressor was Germany. Secondly, it was clear that Western Belarus and Western Ukraine were not Polish lands. Back in 1919, at Versailles, representatives of the Supreme Council of the Entente adopted the so-called “Curzon Line”. It was declared the border between Poland on the one hand, and Belarus and Ukraine on the other. Poland violated this “Curzon Line”, seized Western Belarus and Western Ukraine and held them illegally until 1939 years old The Poles understood that this was not their land. The local population was hostile towards them. It is an indisputable fact, confirmed by photographs, that the inhabitants of these lands greeted the Red Army with flowers and bread and salt.
– If the Red Army went further than Brest, would the Poles resist?
– You know, at that moment the Polish leadership dreamed that the Red Army would reach the line of contact with the Germans and start fighting them. They really wanted it. Perhaps this was their last hope. Because Great Britain and France, which were the guarantors of peace for Poland, although they formally declared war on Germany, did not enter into hostilities. So the Poles really counted on the Red Army. Even when their government moved into exile, it declared that their enemy was Germany, not the Soviet Union.
– Another significant moment, as far as I understand, is the position of Great Britain and France…
– Yes, the very next day, on September 18, the British Parliament met. They discussed the question of how to evaluate the actions of the USSR. And they came to the conclusion that there was no violation of international law. The Soviet Union was forced to occupy these territories, to which it had the right since 1919. Churchill later wrote about this in his memoirs: the Red Army did what it had to do. Went to its borders.
Following Great Britain, the parliament and the government of France made exactly the same decision – not to condemn the Soviet Union. And then the League of Nations did not adopt any sanctions against the USSR. Although a few months later, when in November 1939 the Soviet Union launched a war against Finland, the reaction of this organization was completely different: the USSR was expelled from the League of Nations.
– Was there a discussion of the actions of the Soviet Union in the League of Nations then?
– Yes, we discussed how to react, because, according to the mutual assistance treaty, France and Great Britain had to declare war on the state that would attack Poland. They declared war on Germany. But the Soviet Union is not. And even entered into an alliance later. But if the USSR were considered an aggressor, then there would be no lend-lease supplies, no conferences in Tehran and Yalta.
– That is, in 1939 there was no question of any partition of Poland. When was this meme born?
– The myth about the beginning of the Second World War by Germany and the USSR appeared many years later, during the Cold War.
– When you heard Vladimir Putin’s speech on this subject, how did you feel?
– I confess, I was glad that the Russian president found counterarguments that he can present to the Poles. And I was also delighted, because it turned out that Vladimir Putin and I think in the same direction.
– Did the documents quoted by the Russian President help you in any way?
– Of course, I’m still researching! Vladimir Vladimirovich confirmed the correctness of the idea that Poland is now actively promoting its version of the outbreak of war in order to hide the fact that until 1939 she herself was one of the main allies of Germany and tried to participate in the redrawing of European borders.
Polish Ambassador Lipski and Foreign Minister Beck constantly met with both Hitler and Ribbentrop. They discussed various options for allied action. The most striking confirmation of this is October 1938 years when Germany, Poland and Hungary partitioned Czechoslovakia. Germany took the Sudetenland, Poland – the Teshin region, and Hungary – Sub-Corpathian Rus, the current Ukrainian Transcarpathia.
Among other things, the question of a joint campaign of Poland and Germany against the Soviet Union was discussed.
– Are there any documents confirming this?
– I have not seen a specific paper, where it would be said about this.
