«Belarus» newspaper (Belarusian: газэ́та «Белару́с», [ɡaˈzɛta bʲeɫaˈrus], literally, The Belarusian) — Belarusian newspaper abroad, founded in United States in 1950 by representatives of Belarusian post-war emigration. The periodical is published once every two months by Belarusian-American Association in New York.

«Belarus» is the largest and the oldest Belarusian periodical outside Belarus. The materials include information about life and activism of Belarusian diaspora, Belarus-related news, and many historical and analytical materials. All materials of the periodical are published in Belarusian. Most Belarusian organisations in the world receive the newspaper on a subscription basis.

In terms of political orientation, the newspaper stays on the pro-Belarusian People's Republic, democratic and national revival position and is opposed to the politics of current Belarus president Alexander Lukashenko.

The newspaper was previously published monthly. As of 2015, it’s published once in 2 months.
