Belarus is an interesting country because it's known as "Europe's last dictatorship" due to an unwillingness to integrate with the ever expanding EU to the West and it's relative isolation from Europe but due to the lack of honest coverage in the West, I can't receive an accurate account of life in Belarus. Your accounts of daily activities in Belarus is informative and far superior to the accounts given by the media.

Some interesting information here. Thanks Bulbash.
One thing I'm still not completely clear about is: if Belarus is in the process of changing to a more open market economy, do the leaders have some long term plan in mind? Do they have some economic model in mind for the future? Is there some clear indication of how far they they are intending to privatize things? Or will things probably not go much further in the foreseeable future? Do you think the public want this change?
Also: What's the situation with migration? Are the population free to migrate from Belarus? Are foreigners free to migrate to Belarus? If so, does it happen much?

Thanks Bulbash for all this information. I was just wondering if you could tell me the crime rate and tell me if there is a drug problem in Belarus. I assume health care is free ? Is transportation done by car or public transport ?

Lol.

What a retarded statement.
According to you,70% of Balkan Slavs are actually Jewish,and that is bullshit.
Just because many Eastern European Jews have taken Slavic surnames ending in -ich doesn't mean that these are "Jewish surnames".
And most of Jewish surnames ending in -ich(like Rabinovich) are easily distinguishable from Slavic ones anyway.

I am not talking about Balkan , but in eastern europe it is a jewish last name. I've got family in Belarus , guess what Davidovich
Jewish names end in -ich because they had to change or just changed their original last name in to their middle (fathers) name

OK then,fair enough.
I apologize for being rude.
Still,Balkan Slavs with surnames ending in -ich are(and were) much more numerous than E. European Jews with such surnames...

Ive got alot of Belorussian comrades. Im willing to say that Lukoshenko is a Comrade. October day is still a celebration day there. Russian was made the second officail state language. Independence day is not the say Belarus was torn away from the USSR like it is in all the other former Soviet states but is the day of liberation from the Nazis. Of all the former Soviet republics Belarus has the highest standard of living. Wages are paid on time, pensions are paid on time and the state provides work. For me its a socialist country holding out like th DPRK. When China goes radical again or the USSR comes back im sure Belarus under Lukoshenko will be the forst to join them.

I would like to ask one thing to our Belarussian comrade: do Belarrusian people have to buy their own houses or are them given by the State like in the USSR?

I can answer that. You can buy them or wait in the que for thes tate to give them to you. Its your choice. Buying costs alot so waiting is usually a good option.

Is it true elections are always rigged in Lukashenko's favour?
