Independence Day in Belarus?

Two days ago, on 3 July, Belarusians celebrated that is was 65 years since the liberation of Minsk from the Nazis. However, as the Charter ´97 Press Center states, there is a dispute around the calling of the 3 July the Independence Day for Belarus, which is something proclaimed by Lukashenka. 

There was still fighting going on after the 3 July, and on 27 July 1944 the Declaration on State Sovereignty of Belarus was signed and is thus be considered the real Independence Day by some.
