Belarusian is spoken by about 3 million people, principally in the Eastern European nation of Belarus, where it is co-official alongside Russian. An Indo-European language of the Slavic family, it is closely related to Russian, Rusyn, and Ukrainian, and more distantly so to Polish, Slovak, and Czech. A literary language since at least the 1500s ACE, Modern Belarusian was standardized towards the turn of the twentieth century. Read more on Wikipedia: http://bit.ly/1LJgZOH.
