About Belarus

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.

In February 2022, Belarus was used by Russia as an invasive way into neighbouring Ukraine. Belarus would subsequently suffer sanctions, alongside Vladimir Putin's Russia.


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.
