There are two state languages in Belarus, it is Russian and Byelorussian.It writes as Lukashenka in Byelorussian language and Veronika used this form. But in Russian it is Lukashenko and I think this writing is more correct because 1) The President of Belarus is Russian-speaking leader, 2) He signs official international documents as Lukashenko. That's why your Italian sites are right.Good bay Antonio. God bless your daughter! P.S. Excuse me for my English, I began to learn language only three months ago.

However I would like to learn on your country and your blog is really good, so thanks.I am afraid of systems in which the same person is in office for years. It sounds like a kind of dictatorship.I hope this election will be good for improving your people's life.

It was interesting to know more about Minsk , it 's cultural places , old district , national library ,tube and …. .I liked the view of the Isle of tears ! Is it located in the city river ? If yes how about to talk a bit about it ? When there is a river specially a big one in a city at least I think it has big meaning for the city , don't you think so .By hte way bast wishes for today vote , I wish the best person will be voted .... Sorry for my late comment I had a long weekend . I can guess how much you have dedicated your time for this month Blog and I appreciate it ! see you around and bye Sun 19 Dec 2010 11:25:27 GMT+1 Tereza http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/learningenglish/2010/12/mr-presidents-elections.shtml?page=11#comment1 Hi Veronika,thanks for your post, I was very interested in this topic. Well, it does not seem so bad as I thought. But the article 369 is scary...How does the election look like in Belarus? I mean the process of voting. I understood that you have thy system of direct vote. In Czech republic, the president is voted by Government, which is something that most of the people dislike.I wish you and your country that the best candidate win.Tereza Sun 19 Dec 2010 07:41:59 GMT+1 Ania http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/learningenglish/2010/12/mr-presidents-elections.shtml?page=0#comment0 Veronika,I'm glad you like our only one Polish tube :).There are some concerts organized in Warsaw as a tribute to your nation and a sign of support and solidarity with Belarus. Several times I've seen some youth wearing white-red-white flags on their jakcets and schoolbags. Supposing you're not an imperialist :),I wish you fulfillment of your dreams about your homeland!All the best to you and your nation!AniaAnia Sat 18 Dec 2010 23:08:02 GMT+1
