About Belarus | History - Geography

Belarus, country of eastern Europe. Until it became independent in 1991, Belarus, formerly known as Belorussia or White Russia, was the smallest of the three Slavic republics included in the Soviet Union (the larger two being Russia and Ukraine).

While Belarusians share a distinct ethnic identity and language, they never previously enjoyed unity and political sovereignty, except during a brief period in 1918. Belarusian history is thus less an isolable national narrative than a study of regional forces, their interplay, and their effects on the Belarusian people. The territory that is now Belarus underwent partition and changed hands repeatedly; as a result, much of the history of Belarus is inseparable from that of its neighbors. Since independence Belarus has retained close ties to its most dominant neighbor, Russia. In 1999 the two countries signed the Union State Foundation Treaty, which aimed to create a politically integrated confederation with a common currency; the precise nature of the partnership, however, remained unclear well into the 21st century. The legacy of Belarus’s Soviet past also continued to manifest itself, both in the persistent prominence of communist political parties and in the country’s authoritarian style of government. About one-fifth of the population of Belarus resides in the centrally located capital, Minsk, a sprawling modern city that was almost entirely rebuilt after its near destruction in World War II.

Within Minsk FIR during BELFRA operational hours AOs can plan trajectories using the valid significant points: five-letter name codes or radio navigation aids. Segments between the significant points shall be defined by means of DCT (Direct) instruction. There are no restrictions on MAX DCT distance.

Overflight traffic is allowed to plan directly from BELFRA entry point to BELFRA exit point. No restrictions for number of BELFRA intermediate points used.

Unlawful Interference

The following procedures are intended for use by aircraft when unlawful interference occurs and the aircraft is unable to notify an ATS unit of this fact.


Unless considerations aboard the aircraft dictate otherwise, the pilot-in-command should attempt to continue flying on the assigned track and at the assigned cruising level at least until notification to an ATS unit is possible or the aircraft is within radar coverage.

When an aircraft subjected to an act of unlawful interference must depart from its assigned track or its assigned cruising level without being able to make radiotelephony contact with ATS the pilot-in-command should, whenever possible:

Attempt to broadcast warnings on the VHF emergency frequency and other appropriate frequencies, unless considerations aboard the aircraft dictate otherwise. Other equipment such as on-board transponders, data links, etc. should also be used when it is advantageous to do so and circumstances permit.

Proceed in accordance with applicable special procedures for in-flight contingencies, where such procedures have been established and promulgated in Doc 7030 Regional Supplementary Procedures.

If no applicable regional procedures have been established, proceed at a level which differs from the cruising levels normally used for IFR flight in the area by:

a. 150 m (500 ft) in an area where a vertical separation minimum of 300 m (1000 ft) is applied.

b. 300 m (1000 ft) in an area where a vertical separation minimum of 600 m (2000 ft) is applied.
