Historically, this East European nation was closely connected with Poland and Lithuania. In the distant past, Belarussians also known as Ruthenians were often considered a part of Lithuanian people, while during the 20th century they were believed to be either Russians or Poles up until 1991 when they were cast into unexpected independence as a result of the collapse of the USSR.

 

As of today, the people of Belarus are still on their way towards freedom being at the same time, in search of their own identity.
