Belarus Flag

Belarus is the official name for the country known in German-speaking countries as Belarus, which lies between Poland, Ukraine, Russia, Latvia and Lithuania. In former times the country was also called Belarus and in GDR parlance Belarus.
The Soviet republic, devastated in World War II, only reluctantly broke away from Moscow in 1991. President Lukashenko drove the country into international isolation through his anti-democratic tendencies and the rejection of the western economy. The country’s few partners today include Russia, other successor states of the USSR, as well as Iran.

The Belarusian economy has not been transformed into a market economy. Around 15% of employees work in agriculture. The country is largely dependent on raw material supplies from Russia at prices well below market levels.
Belarus was badly affected by the Chernobyl disaster on April 26, 1986 in Chornobyl, Ukraine, as a result of which large parts of the country were contaminated by radioactive fallout.
