Belarus is a landlocked country in Eastern Europe, bordered by Russia to the north and east, Ukraine to the south, Poland to the west, and Lithuania and Latvia to the north. To read more about Belarus see [https://https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/geos/bo.html The World Factbook] and [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Belarus Wikipedia]. For centuries the lands of modern-day Belarus belonged to several ethnically different countries, including the Principality of Polotsk, the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, and the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth. After the short-lived Belarusian People’s Republic (1918–19), Belarus became a republic of the Soviet Union. Belarus attained its independence in 1991.
