|Republic of Belarus|
Belarus, officially the Republic of Belarusis, is a landlocked country in Eastern Europe, bordered by Russia to the northeast, Ukraine to the south, Poland to the west, and Lithuania and Latvia to the northwest. There was a mission held in Belarus and this was to steal some manufactured rods from Nod, but first there was an offensive which Nod must have taken Belarus in the first place.
History[edit | edit source]
Until the 20th century, the lands of modern-day Belarus belonged to several countries, including the Principality of Polotsk, the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth, and the Russian Empire. In the aftermath of the Russian Revolution, Belarus became a founding constituent republic of the Soviet Union and was renamed as the Byelorussian Soviet Socialist Republic (BSSR). Much of the borders of Belarus took their modern shape in 1939 when some lands of the Second Polish Republic were incorporated into it after the Soviet invasion of Poland and were finalized after World War II. The nation and its territory were devastated in World War II, during which Belarus lost about a third of its population and more than half of its economic resources. The republic was redeveloped in the post-war years. In 1945, the Belorussian SSR became a founding member of the United Nations, along with the Soviet Union and the Ukrainian SSR.
The parliament of the republic declared the sovereignty of Belarus on 27 July 1990, and during the dissolution of the Soviet Union, Belarus declared independence on 25 August 1991
First Tiberium War[edit | edit source]
The country was invaded by Nod after the victory at Latvia and GDI had retaken Lithuania. With Mark Sheppard goes to the United Nations, M.O. Morelli gave a recon report to James Solomon who had been left in charge. Within the Belarus border, a convoy carrying a supply of activated pellet rods stolen from Germany had been spotted by GDI forces. At the same time another convoy was about to set out from Gdansk Poland.
These rods are part of the necessary materials to build a nuclear device, so to prevent Nod from obtaining one of these devices, the GDI had to get the rods back. Two small GDI forces set out to steal the rods from the Nod bases at Gdansk and Bobyrusk. The forces available to the commanders in these mission were limited. As a result they would have to have resorted to speed and stealth rather than all allout assault in order to regain the rods. GDI forces successfully entered the Nod bases and stole back both groups of pellet rods.
With this victory, GDI forces advanced into Belarus and Poland. Their loss set back Nod plans to assemble a nuclear weapon. However in the end this did not matter as Nod would manage to aquire three fully functional nuclear weapons in their African campaign.
By 2047, most of Belarus become Yellow zone.
