It be an insult to Belarusians to have Lithuanian ancestry. We call them žmudziny (Samogitians). We are similar to Mozovians – north-eastern Polеs. Russians of Pskov and Smolensk regions – north-western Russians. Ukrainians of Chernihiv – north-eastern Ukraine. Latgalians – south-eastern Latvia. Dzukai – eastern Lithuanians living near Vilnia (Vilnius). We have Dzukai living in Belarus too.
