Naturally, those associations are most likely highly exaggerated but they're my first and pretty much only associations nonetheless.

Well, Belarus isn't really popular in terms of tourism, at least in Asia/PH, so probably there's only a few who have really been there who can give you insights about your country based on their own experience and not Google.

Perhaps it is also worth considering that I barely know anything about Belarus even though I'm very fond of European history, geography, and economics.
This may contribute to how you evaluate the popularity of your country in the Philippines (or in Southeast Asia, if you find it prudent to use the Philippines as its proxy).

the human right are not respected.
I know about the Russia-Belarus Union (i think Kazachstan joined too) - some analog to the EU that Russia tried to create. Russia is pumping a lot of money in Belarus. From the materialistic point of view - life is actually good in Belarus; I've heared that the students there have a lot of opportunities to study abroad on scholarships. There exists a belarusian language, but it's spoken nowhere - people use russian.
The only thing I like about Lukashenko is that, while taking their money, he's not actually Russia's bitch, unlike other former soviet countries.
