To Do ListEdit

Here are some tasks awaiting attention:

First women MPs in BelarusEdit

Hello. I'm compiling a list of the first women MPs in each country, but have been unable to find the answer for Belarus. I'm guessing they would have been an early member(s) of the Supreme Soviet of the Belarusian SSR, the Congress of Soviets or the Supreme Soviet of the USSR. If anyone can point me to a definitive source, it would be much appreciated. Cheers, Number 57 17:58, 16 November 2020 (UTC)

Infobox flags.Edit

It feels inappropriate to use the green and red flag in infoboxs of people associated with the protests and teh coordinating council. Some of us have been using the red and white one. There should probably be a discussion about teh best way to address this. blindlynx (talk) 00:30, 24 November 2020 (UTC)

FAR for BelarusEdit

I have nominated Belarus for a featured article review here. Please join the discussion on whether this article meets featured article criteria. Articles are typically reviewed for two weeks. If substantial concerns are not addressed during the review period, the article will be moved to the Featured Article Removal Candidates list for a further period, where editors may declare "Keep" or "Delist" the article's featured status. The instructions for the review process are here. (t · c) buidhe 03:08, 9 December 2020 (UTC)

2021 IIHF World ChampionshipEdit

Good day

I have been attempting to add content to articles related to the 2021 IIHF World Championship in ice hockey, scheduled to partly take place in Minsk this year. As you may be aware of this is a highly controversial issue and touches upon the legitimacy of Lukashenka. So far I have met rather staunch resistance and accusations of not being neutral in my approach.

What I would like to achieve for:

  • IIHF: there be a brief summary of the controversy surrounding the Championships with reference to the earlier 2014 championships under Controversy. This is an accepted way of describing controversies, which this is.
  • 2021 IIHF World Championship: a detailed discussion of the various actors at play, these include politicians, international organisations and large companies (event sponsors)
  • Rene Fasel: president of IIHF who is doing things in a very bumbling sort of way and seems to want to have his cake and eat it too (here is an interview where he goes into detail)

I would recommed you review the talk pages of those articles to see the slow progress being made. In particular I think that the 2021 IIHF World Championship has gained political significance which in a sense makes it not only a sports event, but a political prize. If it is held in Minsk then Lukashenka scores a point. If not his opponents do. Why else all the fuss? Jabbi (talk) 12:04, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
