I AM BAAACK FROOOM THE GRAAAAVE
Who are you?
I am an iwakian that helped build this nation to about 19 nations in it.
This is a question for the Russians here. According to you, is Belarus or Ukraine closer to Russia? (linguistically, culturally etc)
Linguistically, Belorussian is much closer to Russian then Ukrainian. Listening to Belorussian I actually have no troubles at all understanding it. In case of the Ukrainian - well, this year with all the stuff that happening I had to upgrade my knowlege of the ukrainian significantly. Trouble, for me at least, is that Ukrainian uses quite uniqe words for something mundane, so my Russian lexicon won't be a much help. E.g. - the ukrainian word for "to work" is "працювати", while russian is "работать". Don't even close.
Culturally, OTOH, Belarus is closer to USSR. then to Russia. Ukrainians may deny it, but they are still very close to us culturally (sans their svidomites, of course).
Robin Hood at large in Kiev's voencomats (military registration and enlistment office). He steals call-up papers from the rich and gives them to the poor.
There's not much difference between them, but Belarus is closer to Russia, because they only had the Polonization effect, whereas Ukraine also had numerous other effects. Belarus also had much less of a Polonization effect than Ukraine. The other thing is that after independence, Ukraine's government tried to make them look as non-Russian as possible, whereas the Belorussians simply developed their own culture, not making it anti-anything. Ukraine's history's also just insane; for instance, because the Novgorod Republic predates Ukraine by 20 years, they simply excluded it, portraying the Novgorodians, who had/have a culture, verbal language, architecture, system of government, system of trade, system of taxation, social rights, etc, as simple raiders.
And another fund fact. Belorussian zamgari insists (and, partially, are right), that Ukrainian language evolved from their - Older Belorussian (or, as they say incorrectly in the West, Ruthenian), and they themselves were descendants of proto-Belorussians escaping to frontier.
And another one, do you count the two languages as original or offspring from two others? (kind of like Ukrainian which is mixed between Polish and Russian like the word which you just mentioned is practically the same in Polish)
Also here are some interpretations of traditional slavic music that i like:
