Belarus Minsk Subway Terrorist Bombing

Belarus Minsk Subway Bombing

On Monday night, after touring the site of the subway bombing that killed at least 12 people in the capital of Belarus, the country's authoritarian president, Alexander Lukashenko, cast the net of suspicion as far and wide as he could. The shrapnel-packed bomb that blew up on the crowded platform that evening could have been a "gift from abroad," he told his security chiefs, or it could have been taken from an army warehouse. Anyone who owns a gun should be checked, he said, and anyone "interested in disturbing the peace" was a suspect. For the country's political opposition this has meant one thing: lay low.

And that is just how Lukashenko likes it. In the past month, Belarus has been on the edge of economic collapse, with soaring prices, food shortages and a looming devaluation of the currency. On top of that, the public is still shaken from the brief revolt in December, when tens of thousands of people rose up to protest Lukashenko's re-election and provoked the worst political crackdown that the country — or for that matter, all of Europe — has seen in years.

The present borders of Belarus were established during the turmoil of World War II.

The former Soviet republic was occupied by the Nazis between 1941 and 1944, when it lost 2.2 million people, including most of its large Jewish population.

There are about 400,000 ethnic Poles living in the west of the country.

It has been ruled with an increasingly iron fist since 1994 by President Alexander Lukashenko. Opposition figures are subjected to harsh penalties for organising protests.

Belarus Belarusian: Беларусь, Russian: Беларусь, Белоруссия, officially the Republic of Belarus, is a landlocked country in Eastern Europe, bordered clockwise by Russia to the northeast, Ukraine to the south, Poland to the west, and Lithuania and Latvia to the northwest. Its capital is Minsk; other major cities include Brest, Grodno (Hrodna), Gomel (Homiel), Mogilev (Mahilyow) and Vitebsk (Viciebsk). Forty percent of its 207,600 square kilometres (80,200 sq mi) is forested, and its strongest economic sectors are agriculture and manufacturing.
