- 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)
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)
- Please follow reliable sources in the English language and do not engage in wp:original research. You have mistaken National for Nationalist; two different words with two different meanings. Poeticbent talk 19:55, 15 December 2012 (UTC)
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 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)

Not english spellings
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) * Mikoła Abramčyk (1944–1970) * Vincent Žuk-Hryškievič (1970–1982) * Jazep Sažyč (1982–1997) * Ivonka Survilla (1997–present)
What about Red Army crimes in Belarus starting from 1918?
The article lacks some information.

Government in exile
"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"
Germany have not recognized Belarusian Peoples Republic. the links is not a good reference. " Belarusian Peoples Republic was recognized by Lithuania, LOatvia, Estonia, Finland, Ukrainian Peoples 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 126.96.36.199 (talk) 12:37, 1 August 2010 (UTC)
