About our Belarus news
Latest news on Belarus, a country in Eastern Europe bordered by Russia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Ukraine. Belarus has a population of approximately 9.2 million people and its capital and largest city is Minsk.
Belarus was part of the Soviet Union until its collapse in 1991 and has since maintained close ties with Russia, including a union agreement and a common currency, the ruble. However, the country has faced criticism for its lack of political freedom and human rights abuses, particularly under the rule of President Alexander Lukashenko, who has been in power since 1994.
