The polish language in Belarus
The Poles / spokepersons of the Polish, in the year 2009 are constituted about 294,000 people
in the country Belarus. That‘s over 3,1% of the population. They speak the masovian
dialect, like the Poles in northeastern Poland and southern Lithuania. However, there
are also loanwords from the Belarussian and Ukrainian to find. For the organization
and representation of the minority, there is the so-called League of Poles in Belarus,
which employs 400,000 people. It is one of the largest NGOs in Belarus and
currently has two schools and 16 Culture Centers. Since 2005, two board
member exist. They was legally voted but not get recognized by the bela-
russian gouvernment. The organization attrected international attention when
it accused by the Lukashenko gouvernment of launching a revolution against
the state  like to that in Ukraine, Georgia and Kyrgyzstan.

I once knew a guy like you except instead of being obsessed with maps he was obsessed with bells. So as far as obsessions go this is pretty neat, 10/10 would draw a map of my boyfriends ass again.

Why are there so few Lithuanians in Belarus? Some say that Poles in Belarus include part of Belarusian-speaking Roman Catholics, is this true?
