The country is also called as "Belorussia". Ilya Drakonov (talk) 18:42, 26 February 2015 (UTC).
Taken from the article: "The term Belorussia (its names in other languages such as English being based on the Russian form) was only used officially until 1991, when the Supreme Soviet of the Byelorussian Soviet Socialist Republic decreed by law that the new independent republic should be called Republic of Belarus ("Республика Беларусь" spelled in Russian), as well its abridged form should be "Belarus". The law decreed that all the forms of the new term should be transliterated into other languages from their Belarusian language forms. The use of Byelorussian SSR and any abbreviations thereof were allowed from 1991 to 1993. Conservative forces in the newly independent Belarus did not support the name change and opposed its inclusion in the 1991 draft of the Constitution of Belarus."

Jcmcc450, don't teach me. I am Russian and we use 2 names of Belarussia. So it is right. Ilya Drakonov (talk) 14:30, 1 March 2015 (UTC).
You probably forgot that this is the English Wikipedia. What you use in Russian is highly irrelevant.--Ymblanter (talk) 14:33, 1 March 2015 (UTC)
