I have translated as best as I can but Belarusian is slightly different to Russian (both use the cyrillic alphabet), although Belarusian has more characters but different word structure. Anyone with a better knowledge of Belarusian is welcomed to let me know what I may have got wrong. Some words I just could not translate (even with Google) !
