  • Capital city was Smalensk.
I am afraid you are mistaken. BSSR was proclaimed in Smalensk immediately before the Red Army crushed BNR. Mikkalai 15:48, 27 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Name[edit]

Belarusian People's Republic in belarusian : Беларуская Народная Рэспубліка, eng. transliteration : Belaruskaya Narodnaya Republika. Wrongly translated as "Belarusian National Republic" , because national in belarusian is Националная.

Why not moving it to People's Republic then? Brugues 15:03, 24 January 2007 (UTC)

one contributor[edit]

Wikipedia contributor Kuban coSSack's talking about dictatorial ruler Lukashenka (who massively and monstrously falsified the vote) and today's storming of the October square, when hundreds of special police arrested peaceful demonstrators, totally destoryed the camp, threw empty vodka bottles into the mess and videotaped that for Belarusan state television. Here's Kuban coSSack's comment about this police action and break-up of a peaceful protest, which took place at 3AM so that there would be no witnesses of their activity:

Dear fellow Wikipedians, do you understand that the only purpose of his contributions on articles about Belarus (such as Belarusian language, Belarusian history, Belarus, etc.) is to push Russian imperial POV and lies? Please, see history and talk pages of the Belarus-related articles. --rydel 16:33, 24 March 2006 (UTC)

Armed Forces[edit]

Armed forces are not a legal requirement for nationhood, as the article implies -- else Costa Rica would not be a country. --Daniel C. Boyer 20:08, 3 September 2006 (UTC)

Influence today[edit]

Does the BNR have any influence over Belarusian politics today? Fishal 01:08, 18 September 2006 (UTC)


Not english spellings[edit]

These names should be written in English alphabet. Letters č and Ž don't exist in English.

   * Jan Sierada (1918–1919)
   * Piotra Krečeŭski (1919–1928)
   * Vasil Zacharka (1928–1943)

It's in Lacinka. 195.222.71.80 20:30, 11 July 2007 (UTC)

What about Red Army crimes in Belarus starting from 1918?[edit]

The article lacks some information.

Government in exile[edit]

"Similar governments-in-exile of the neighboring countries (Lithuania, Poland and others) handed back their symbolic "authorities" to the corresponding independent governments in the 1990s, after the dissolution of the Soviet Union. The BNR council has not done this because it views the current Belarusian government of president Alexander Lukashenka as an anti-Belarusian, anti-independence, and an anti-democratic power."

What happened in 1990–1991 was exactly what the government of BNR in exile was longing for. (The authoritarian regime of Lukashenko was established only in 1995) So this does not explain why they didn't hand back their authorities to the new Belarusian government in 1991–1995. — Glebchik (talk) 16:51, 16 May 2009 (UTC)

"was" should be replaced with "is"[edit]

The article states that the government is still in exile, so wouldn't it still exist, even if only de jure?--CafeDelKevin (talk) 02:23, 23 January 2010 (UTC)

Recognized[edit]

Germany have not recognized Belarusian People’s Republic. the links is not a good reference. " Belarusian People’s Republic was recognized by Lithuania, LOatvia, Estonia, Finland, Ukrainian People’s Republic, Czechoslovakia, and Turkey." When german recognized Belarus of an independant state ? http://www.terradelfuoco.org/pdf/uff-3_en.pdf —Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.250.207.231 (talk) 12:37, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

Belarusian People's RepublicBelarusian National Republic – Per inline citation in English, and wp:verifiability. Present name (Belarusian People's Republic) is not supported by references in the English language. The only wp:rs citation clearly says BNR... not BPR. Please see applicable naming convention policies and guidelines for support. Relisted. BDD (talk) 19:36, 27 December 2012 (UTC) Poeticbent talk 18:33, 15 December 2012 (UTC)

  • "about 20,500" ... well for "Belarusian People's Republic" -Wikipedia I get 100 000 more: "About 126,000 results". NVanMinh (talk) 22:21, 16 December 2012 (UTC)
Take a second look, please. Most of your results are from Belarus, not from the English-speaking countries. According to Google books, only about 279 results mention "Belarusian People's Republic" -Wikipedia. Less than the Belarusian National Republic. Poeticbent talk 01:36, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
Then why you still have " wp:verifiability. Present name (Belarusian People's Republic) is not supported by references in the English language. "? NVanMinh (talk) 07:47, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
