"I Am Belarusian"[1] (previously "Born in Bielorussia" or "Born in Byelorussia") is a song written by Evgeny Oleinik, Svetlana Geraskova and performed by Anastasia Vinnikova and was due to represent Belarus at the Eurovision Song Contest 2011, after being internally selected by the Belarussian national television.[2] However the song had to be withdrawn after it was discovered that it was sung in public in the summer of 2010. It was changed to another song called "I Love Belarus".[3]
