You do not need minkovsky space to derive Lorents. All you need is to assume symmetry of all inertial frames. That is how Lorents transforms were derived in 10th grade in my school (by the way, not in Chernobyl but in Azerbaijan).

Constancy of speed of light follows.

(By the way, interesting that in US even in universirty textbooks Lorents is derived from constancy of speed of light, which is not too logical because then you have to explain why c is constant.
