Belarus: Wikipedia Edit Wars

br23 blog writes about edit wars constantly taking place at Wikipedia's Belarusian history pages: “This continuing butchering of the articles about Belarus by Russians on English Wikipedia also ruined my trust in the Wikipedia as a whole. Now, I have to confess, I don’t go to Wikipedia anymore to read about political or historical events, and only go to Wikipedia when I need to check something on natural sciences (biology, archeology, physics, math…)”
