What geographic area does Belarus cover? #belarus


Is it just me?

I have difficulty in being sure of what geographic areas are included in
"Belarus". Did the boundaries shift with time periods such as after the
Russian Revolution? WWI? WWII? Or is this a modern overlay of a
specific geographic area that doesn't change no matter what the time
period? . Is there duplication with other SIGs because of this?
