“The lesson of patriotism. In search of the Republic” – is the after-effect of the International Motorcycle Katyn Rally in which Jolanta Stopka participated. The rally, in fact, is not a sporting event, but even though one has to have a real strength and the will to cope with the hardships of the route. The rally is a pilgrimage to the holy places for Poles and other nations of the Two Nations Republic living today in Lithuania, Belarus, Russia and Ukraine. Katyn Rally shows twentieth century mass murders perpetraded against our nations by degenerate executioners wearing not only the Soviet or Nazi uniforms. It also shows the enormity and scale of the manipulation of the propaganda made by murderers whose heirs still blur the traces of the crimes committed by their forefathers. The genocide done in the name of the villainous ideologies to fight a great idea called REPUBLIC (COMONWEALTH).
