Ok how long does the Belarusan Visa last for?

I understand that there are certain rules for foreigners can you tell me what they are?

From what I have been reading Belarus has a very bad leader "Europe's last dictator" is that true from your point of view?

As Belarusans do you feel your lives are hard?

I think that is Gordon Brown you are talking about. He never even went to elections and no one supports him.

Sorry im confused I was referring to the Belarusan leader.

Is living in Belarus hard?

I understand that Belarus is stuck in a time warp can you clarify what things in Belarus are stuck in that time warp?

How long does the Belarusan visa last for?

Is the length of the Visa any longer for EU Citizens?

It seems to me that the living standards in Belarus are quite low. The rent is 2/3 of the average salary (!!!) - that's a lot of money. Prices for transport, food etc. don't seem too cheap either. So, the $300 it's a rent for what type of apartment (size, number of rooms, city)?

This pricing for capital - Minsk. there is a typical situation for all countries.
In ex-USSR real estate sector is overvalued due to lack of investment, mortgage and etc ralative to avarege salary

Apartment in Minsk, one room or probably two but somewhere in the outskirts of the city. May the colleagues correct me if I am wrong. However you have to take into account the fact that the practice of renting an apartment is not that wide-spread in Belarus as let's say in the Western Europe. Most of the people live in the apartments which they own, so that they have to pay only communal costs (gas, electricity etc). Moreover a number of people live in the accommodations that are provided by the enterprise they work for or university (if it goes about students) at a very reasonable low cost (but unfortunately often the quality of these apartments is poor).

I will be please if someone can extend my answer.

Yes, I understand perfectly. A similar phenomenon occurs in Romania, too. Most (>90%) of the people own their apartments, so the rental market is small and informal, so the prices are extremeley high. In Romania too the salary/rent ratio is outrageous - close to 1:1 in Bucharest (for a small 2 rooms apartement). However the difference as I see it is that the state isn't involved anymore in economy in Romania, while in Belarus it's still pretty much present. So basically Belarus is more of a wellfare state than most of the former communist countries now in the EU.

I have two more question.

1. How do you perceive the EU and US critics towards Belarus? Do you see them as fair or highly biased?
2. Does Belarus has a high (temporary or not) work immigration? If yes, where do belorussians go to work mostly? Russia, Western Europe?

1. As for me, Their critics is an objective, but I hate when other countries "put thier noses" in our internal business. Due to their "help" the situation becames more worst.

2. About 500 th work abroad (most of them in Russia) or 10% of work power.
This is a typical sitation for eastern regions, unclassified workers (builders). We don't have a border with Russia and we don't need to have any paper to get work in Russia.
Salary in many russian regions at laest in two times more than in Belarus

1. The independent state without Lukoshenka (looks unbelievable) between UE and China...
2. not more than 13% of total investment or 4-5% of GDP.

We are discussing architecture and construction here. There are definitely nice places on the web to talk about the politics.
