Is Belarusian closer to Russian or Polish?
Belarusian is an official language of Belarus, along with Russian, and is spoken abroad, mainly in Ukraine and Russia.
Before Belarus gained independence from the Soviet Union in 1991, the language was only known in English as Byelorussian or Belorussian, transliterating the Russian name, белорусский язык, or alternatively as White Ruthenian or White Russian. Following independence, it has acquired the additional name Belarusian.
