As part of the events dedicated to the 80th anniversary of the liberation of Belarus from the Nazi invaders, students and teachers of the Minsk Radio Engineering College honored the memory of a participant in the Minsk underground during the Great Patriotic War, Hero of the Soviet Union Vladimir Stepanovich Omelyanuk, by laying flowers at the monument at the site of his death near Krasnoe church in Minsk.

Vladimir Stepanovich was a member of the Minsk city committee of the Communist Party of Bolsheviks (Bolsheviks) of Belarus, one of the organizers and leaders of the city underground, and editor of the first issue of the underground newspaper Zvyazda.

Since August 1941, he acted as part of the Komarov underground group: he wrote leaflets, reproduced and distributed Sovinformburo reports, maintained contact with partisan detachments of the Minsk region, underground fighters of the Dzerzhinsky region, participated in the liberation of prisoners of war from death camps, and in the creation of an underground printing house. In May 1942, German agents tracked down Omelyanyuk, but failed to capture him. An underground fighter died in a shootout near the Red Church.
