News to me, although there may be a reference to this effect in the manga
In any case, it's a retcon -- Belarus has only been an independent republic
since 1991. Between 1919 and 1991 it was Belorussia, a constituent
republic of the Soviet Union, and prior to 1919 it didn't exist. Stampede
was published in the late 80s, so any reference there would be to
Belorussia, not Belarus.
