    Standard is right.
    Believe me as someone who are living in Belarus ;-)

    Official country name: Belarus
    Language/Nationality: Belarusian

    Standard has taken things right as we pronounce them.

    P. S. Political history had made us 'white russians' approx. hundred years ago.
    Real historical name of country is Lithuania - as our neighbour country is
    called now.begin:vcard
