Don't listen to those morons Burislav and Bandera, they are fascists. I'm belrussian and I spent some years in Belrussia. Well, it is surprisingly clean and safe country even compared to mine. Unfortunately belrussian language is endangered. It is much less used in cities. Anyway, my relatives speak real belrussian, not trasyanka and knowing russian you could understand 70% of it, not 90% of course. Anyway, in belrussia there are few sick radical guys like bandera here who try only to insult others. People are quiet nice but they have too few self respect I guess.

Вот и я об этом подумал. Впрочем на таких товарищей внимание лучше не обращать.

When I was telling that the Russians don't understand it, I was thinking above all about spoken language. With the reading it's different and certainly easier (at least for me it is so). Additionally, you know Ukrainian, which helps a lot.

another questions

traveling:

Few times I have seen in Warsaw cars with belarusian number plates and thus I wanted to ask whether it isdifficult to travel/study/work abroad for belarusian people?

Would You (in your own opinion) prefer to have easier access to Europe or to Russia, Kazakhstan etc. ?

ties with Russia:

I am always courious how do You perceive Your biggest neighbour Russia, is it really similar to Belarus or (except the language) those are two diffrent societies, nations?

Do belarusian people/ your government really want to make a union with Russia? Would You be happy with that?

Sorry man, seems to my you mix Belarus and N. Korea. Not so bad in Belarus like you're imaging (what your sources of information about Belarus? WSJ and NYT?) I visited USA (work), UK (study), Iran (study), Poland (travel) and other countries. No problem.

We have no the board with CIS countries, but we need a vise for other. I prefer to have similar access to any countries aroun the world.

Two different nations, one society.

We have a kind of union with Russia now. For me it's enough. Other level of union between such big counry like Russia and small Belarus is impossible.

all this only my private opinion.

I am personally sceptical about such a vision. The languages will definitely merge but not that fast.

I know some students on my University who study there but worry to go back.

Anyway I heard from many people that there is really complicated procedure to cross the boarder by car. You have to collect some stamps etc. but the same implies to Ukraine.

Denepd on were is your University (US, Poland, UK). I know a lot student who study abroad by political reasons. But i don't know any student who had a problem when backed home. Of course if you hate the government, It's impossible to make career in an official structures and usual People who study abroad, prefer to work abroad (only by economic reason).

About special stamps for travalling and so on. It's normal system: In Belarus we had to get special stamp to across the Board (It means you don't have any "bad bank debt", you don't under arest e.t.c.). In Russia, Canada and US you should get a foreing passport for travelling.
From this year we don't need special a passport stamp in Belarus, on the Board authorities just check your name in a list of people who can't laeve territory of Belarus.

Salaries differ. But not as much as in, say, Moscow.
In McDonalds, for instance, they offer USD250

Ok thanks. Would Belarus pay like Western Salaries? $250 USD for McDonalds is ok money.

I am an Australian do we need a visa to visit Belarus?

Is Belarus poor or a rich country?

Why do Belarusians need a Visa for the EU? Im sure Belarus is not that much of a problem

Thank you
