Admittedly it's a little ASB. But maybe let's assume Ukrainians are sabotaging their ally's efforts to an even greater degree than Belarusians in OTL, blowing railways and whatnot. Also, maybe there was a deeper and swifter integration with NATO prior to the invasion than in the case of Ukraine.I don't think it's possible for Belarus to win this.
Like the ones in Ukraine I imagineWhat are the pro-Russian separatists in Belarus like?
I'm just wondering what regions would secede, given that the distribution of where Russian is speaking in Belarus is relatively evenly distributed throughout the country compared to Ukraine, where it's very much concentrated in the southeast.Like the ones in Ukraine I imagine

Ooo very nice!
My one nitpick is the coasts of foreign countries should be a tad thicker, because they're hard to see.

NTS Post-Nazi Collapse Russia
After looking at that TNO thing long time ago (maybe they had the same idea as I later, but I didn't follow the project closely so I don't know) and reading an article about NTS (National Alliance of Russian Solidarists) I immediately had an idea to make a map where NTS came to power after some sort of Nazi Collapse (interesting, given that this is portrayed in both TNO and TWR - one of the most popular Nazi victory scenarios today - would that make "Nazi Collapse" a new cliche?).
So what is so special about NTS? Well, these guys tried to infiltrate not just only the USSR, they also tried to infiltrate the German occupationary administration during WW2, while also remaining opposed to the Soviets. I actually think that they're one of the most interesting White emigre groups and not just because of their insignia.
In this scenario, sort of "new generic" where Nazis won but eventually lost and collapsed, NTS gradually infiltrated the government of RK Muscovy and seized the power, somehow.
If you wonder what the names of the provinces are - well, there isn't anything very special - the administrative boundaries mostly mirror the old Soviet ones, though they're governates (gubernias) now, not oblasts.
Well, technically it is a sign of Vladimir the Great, a ruler of Rus, so the sign shows a continuity to Rus, which is in Russia traditionally considered to be the first Russian state. It was actually adopted by Ukraine in 1917 for the same reasons (Rus as the first Ukrainian state), though as NTS came later than that, they probably wanted to, as the English Wikipedia puts it, "demonstrate the continuity and interrelatedness of Russian and Ukrainian tradition".Why are they using the tryzub?
