Belarus was a convenient battleground for Polish and Russian
armies between the 16th and 18th centuries.
The Russians retreated in 1812 when Napoleon's armies invaded, and the
area never had a real chance to develop.
A Belarusian democratic republic was proclaimed after the collapse of
the Russian Empire, but the Bolsheviks soon put a stop to that idea.
The country was again almost devastated during World War II, when the
Germans were expelled.
Belarus also received the highest amount of nuclear fallout, of all
the Soviet republics, from the Chernobyl disaster; across the border, in Ukraine.
The capital of the Republic of Belarus was founded in 1067, as
Mensk, and has been under Lithuanian, Polish and Russian control during its history; and
was even occupied by the Germans.
