Only in 1918, following the upheavals caused by the First World War and the Bolshevik revolution, was Belarus able to adopt its own partially autonomous administrative structure within the Soviet Union; and only in 1991, with the final collapse of the USSR, gained full political independence.

And while in several former Soviet states, after independence, pro-Western nationalist and liberal tendencies prevailed, accompanied by entry into the EU and NATO, in Belarus throughout the first fifteen years of independent life the opposite trend prevailed, marked by various federation projects with Russia, by an authoritarian system of power, by state control over vast sectors of the economy and by strong tensions with countries westerners.
