Belarusian nationalism

Flag of Belarus from 1991 to 1995.

Belarusian nationalism is the Belarusian version of nationalism. Belarusian nationalism is activated in times of weakening Russia's pressure on Belarus, as it was in the early 20th century, which resulted in the declaration of the Belarusian People's Republic, and at the end of the 20th century, which resulted in the proclamation of independence of the Republic of Belarus[1][2]. Today there is a number of organizations with the ideological basis of Belarusian nationalism (BPF Party, the CCP BPF, Young Front, Right Alliance etc.[3]).

During Russian aggression against Ukraine from 2014, the Belarusian nationalists took part in the war on the side of Ukraine[4][5][6][7]. The Monument to the Belarusians who died for Ukraine was opened on March 28, 2016 in Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine[8].

Belarusian nationalists support the abolition of the allied relations with Russia and the Russian language official status, strengthening the independence of the Belarusian state, the adoption of the national flag to the historic white-red-white flag and the coat of arms Pahonia, the rehabilitation of the Belarusian national identity since intense russification of Belarus in the 19-20th centuries[1][2].
