Nowadays, more and more Belarusians fill themselves as unique nation especially due to events taking place in Ukraine. It seems that the national aspirations of the Belarusians will be strengthened, and a healthy nationalism must help them to do that. Belarusian nationalism should be inclusive, or, in other words, healthy, good nationalism – nationalism based on the Belarusian identity, taking into account the interests of national minorities and all social strata. Implementation of the ideas of the Belarusian nationalism will promote to Belarusians: 1. to identify themselves as Belarusians consciously; 2. to build a full nation-state on the principles of inclusiveness; 3. to protect Belarusian nation from destruction and absorption by ‘Russian world’ or by other supranational organizations.
