Dinner? Do you mean "lunch"? Or "supper"?[edit]

"Typically, Belarusians eat a light breakfast and two hearty meals, with dinner being the largest meal of the day" Considering that "dinner" generally means "the largest meal of the day", this sentence is completely unhelpful. I know many people who use the word "dinner" for the midday meal and many others who use it for the evening meal. Does anyone know which is meant here?

Visa-free entrance to Belarus[edit]

From the 26th of October 2016 residents of 80 countries can travel to Grodno and the Grodno District and from the 9th of January 2017 to the whole territory of Belarus, from the 1st of January 2018 also to Brest and some districts of Brest Province without a visa and stay there for up to 10 (Grodno and Brest regions) or 30 (the whole Belarus) days.

Extended-confirmed-protected edit request on 11 October 2019[edit]

Change 2017 information to past tense not future. Zoeywool (talk) 20:23, 11 October 2019 (UTC)

 Done I changed "From 1 July until 31 December 2016, the old and new currencies will be in parallel circulation and series 2000 notes and coins can be exchanged for series 2009 from 1 January 2017 to 31 December 2021." to "From 1 July until 31 December 2016, the old and new currencies were in parallel circulation and series 2000 notes and coins can be exchanged for series 2009 from 1 January 2017 to 31 December 2021." As the only mention in the main body of the article to 2017, I am assuming that this is what was requested. Egsan Bacon (talk) 01:29, 12 October 2019 (UTC)

Authoritarian system?[edit]

Pages for Russia, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan and numerous other countries have "under an authoritarian system/state/dictatorship" etc. in the Government section, I think it would be appropriate to add this to Belarus' Government section for the sake of consistency. — Preceding unsigned comment added by FantasticRiceCrackers (talkcontribs) 00:27, 26 October 2019 (UTC)

BSSR section[edit]

Someone who can edit this needs to put a space before "Treaty of Riga" since it looks wrong with no space between words. 2600:1004:B102:B0F0:34F9:D278:E2DF:BC73 (talk) 15:22, 10 November 2019 (UTC)

You probably mean Peace of Riga. Seems fine to me.--Ymblanter (talk) 18:55, 10 November 2019 (UTC)
