Abstract

Belarus is in many ways a country treated as a non-democratic regime. This regime is more than twenty-two years lasting authoritarian president Alexander Lukashenko. Nevertheless, his person met in his own country with only a small wave of resistance, where the majority of Belarusian society is to benevolent to government regulations. The aim of this study is to look for reasons of disinterest and indifference of Belarusian society to the government, that should be encoded in the national identity of population. One of the main lines of the Belarusian national identity is confronted with the concept created by Alexander Zinoviev, which called a human living in post-Soviet countries in easy way – Homo Sovieticus. What are the main attributes of homo sovieticus? They occur even today? What is their future, and how manifests this concept in Belarusian society? On all these issues, the study will try to answer.

Keywords: national identity, Belarus, homo sovieticus, Belarus – Russia relations
