What is Belarus known for?


century describing

. '''Ruthenia''' is the Latin word used onwards from the 13th century, describing lands of the Ancient Rus in European manuscripts. Its geographic and culturo-ethnic name at that time was applied to the parts of Eastern Europe. Essentially, the word is a Latin rendering of the ancient place name ''Rus'' (Rus (name)). Today, the historical territory of Rus (Rus (region)) is formed with part(s) of the lands of Belarus, northern Ukraine, western Russia, small parts of northeastern Slovakia, and narrow strips of eastern Poland. * The break-up of SFR Yugoslavia (Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia) led to the Olympic debuts of Croatia, Slovenia and Bosnia and Herzegovina. Due to United Nations sanctions, FR Yugoslavian (Federal Republic of Yugoslavia) athletes were not allowed to participate with their own team. However, ''individual'' athletes could compete under the Olympic flag as Independent Olympic Participants (Independent Olympic Participants at the 1992 Summer Olympics). * In men's artistic gymnastics, Vitaly Scherbo from Belarus, representing the Unified Team, won six gold medals, including four on a single day. Five of the six golds were in individual events, tying Eric Heiden's record for individual gold medals at a single Olympics (Michael Phelps would tie this record in 2008 (Swimming at the 2008 Summer Olympics)). * In women's artistic gymnastics, Tatiana Gutsu took gold in the All-Around competition edging the United States' Shannon Miller. The frontiers between Poland, which had established an unstable independent government following World War I, and the former Tsarist empire, were rendered chaotic by the repercussions of the Russian revolutions and civil war. Poland's Józef Piłsudski envisioned a new federation (Międzymorze), forming a Polish-led East European bloc to form a bulwark against Russia and Germany, while the RSFSR considered carrying the revolution westward by force. When Piłsudski carried out a military thrust into Ukraine in 1920 (Kiev Offensive (1920)), he was met by a Red Army offensive that drove into Polish territory almost to Warsaw. However, Piłsudski halted the Soviet advance at the Battle of Warsaw (battle of Warsaw (1920)) and resumed the offensive. The "Peace of Riga" signed in early 1921 split the territory of Belarus and Ukraine between Poland and Soviet Russia. The town of Pripyat, Ukraine was the site of the Chernobyl disaster, which occurred on April 26, 1986 when a nuclear plant exploded. The fallout contaminated large areas of northern Ukraine and even parts of Belarus. This spurred on a local independence movement called the Rukh (People's Movement of Ukraine) that helped expedite the break-up of the Soviet Union during the late 1980s. Several countries have consulates in Burgas, among them Turkey, Belarus, Romania, Russia and Ukraine. 2009 Tromsø got off to a good start in the 2009-10 UEFA Europa League, playing 0–0 away to Dinamo Minsk (FC Dinamo Minsk) from Belarus and then winning 4–1 at home (after two goals by Tommy Knarvik, one by Morten Moldskred, and one own goal) in the second qualifying round. Tromsø played NK Slaven Belupo in the third qualifying round, marking the second time in history that Tromsø plays a Croatian team in a European cup. They won 2–1 at Alfheim, after Slaven scored late in the first half. Two goals in the second half within two minutes, the second by a lightly hurt Sigurd Rushfeldt, they won at home, and after 0–2 away, at a tricky home stadium, two goals by Rushfeldt (14,81) won their way and win into the third and last qualifying round of the European league 2009. Now, they will play against one of the best teams in Spanish football history, the basque (Basque Country national football team) Athletic Club (Athletic Club Bilbao) (of Bilbao). Sigurd Rushfeldt has played in the Spanish league as a first targeter. Athletic Bilbao won the first leg in Bilbao 3–2, including one goal from a controversial penalty when the Bilbao player appeared to dive. Another controversial penalty, this time awarded by French referee Tony Chapron, ended Tromsø IL's chances, as they drew the home leg 1–1 and lost 3–4 on aggregate – two of the four goals coming from controversial penalty decisions.

academic history

, Zhelezovski skated for Belarus. After ending his skating career in 1994, Zhelezovski became president of the skating union of Belarus, a position he held for several years. '''Mikałaj Ułaščyk''' (Mikalai Ulashchyk, Belarusian language: ''Мікалай Улашчык'', Russian language: ''Николай Николаевич Улащик''; February 14, 1906 - November 22, 1986) was a Belarusian academic historian (History) and archaeologist (Archaeology) known for significant contributions to the research in the medieval history of Belarus. After the final release he was not able to go back to Belarus and settled in Moscow where since 1955 he worked at the Institute of History of the USSR Academy of Sciences.

Originally brought up to play the flute, like his father, a weakness of the lungs forced him to seek a different specialisation. In 1831 he constructed what he called a ''wood and straw instrument'', essentially a xylophone laid out like a cimbalom on a soundboard (sounding board) made from rolls of straw which allowed a loud resonance. There is debate whether this instrument was invented by Gusikov himself, or by his contemporary Samson Jakubowski. On this instrument Gusikov developed an extraordinary virtuosity, and in 1834 gave concerts in Moscow, Kiev and Odessa.

The latter date was presented by Piasecki on several occasions, probably because he deliberately wanted to mislead the authorities. He was an illegitimate son

Belarus

'''Belarus''' (

Until the 20th century, the lands of modern-day Belarus belonged to several countries, including the Principality of Polotsk, the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth, and the Russian Empire. In the aftermath of the Russian Revolution (Russian Revolution (1917)), Belarus declared independence as the Belarusian People's Republic, succeeded by the Socialist Soviet Republic of Byelorussia, which became a founding constituent republic of the Soviet Union (Republics of the Soviet Union) and was renamed as the Byelorussian Soviet Socialist Republic (BSSR). Belarus lost almost half of its territory to Poland after the Polish-Soviet war. Much of the borders of Belarus took their modern shape in 1939 when some lands of the Second Polish Republic were reintegrated into it after the Soviet invasion of Poland and were finalized after World War II. The republic was redeveloped in the post-war years. In 1945, Belarus became a founding member of the United Nations, along with the Soviet Union and the Ukrainian SSR.

The parliament of the republic declared the sovereignty of Belarus on

Over 70% of Belarus's population of 9.49 million resides in urban areas. More than 80% of the population is ethnic Belarusian, with sizable minorities of Russians, Poles and Ukrainians. Since a referendum in 1995, the country has had two official languages: Belarusian (Belarusian language) and Russian (Russian language). The Constitution of Belarus does not declare any official religion, although the primary religion in the country is Eastern Orthodox Christianity (Belarusian Orthodox Church). The second most popular, Roman Catholicism (Roman Catholicism in Belarus), has a much smaller following, although both Orthodox and Catholic versions of Christmas and Easter are celebrated as national holidays (Public holidays in Belarus).
