    Let’s put some  historic facts about Slavic countries you find interesting.

    Western Russian city of Smolensk was capital of Beylorussian SSR for 4 days between 01/01/1919-05/01/1919. After the capital of the Republic was transferred to Minsk. Historically, Smolensk was a Belarusian city.

    There was Lithuanian–Byelorussian Soviet Socialist Republic (Lit-Bel in short) for around 5 months in 1919.

    There was Ruthenian National Republic of the Lemkos in Carpathians , as far west as Krakow city. Being Russophiles western Lemkos intended to unify with Russia opposing to a union with Poland or the West Ukrainian People’s Republic. On the other hand the Komancza Republic (eastern Lemko republic)  planned to unite with the West Ukrainian People’s Republic.

    In the end most Lemkos were sent in western Poland (German territories) and Ukraine after WWII. Their original homeland in northern Carpathians remains in Poland and north-eastern Slovakia.

    In Russian empire prior to 1918 there Vilnia governate on territories what is present day eastern Lithuania and north-western Belarus : http://dic.academic.ru/pictures/wiki/files/76/Lithuania_1867-1914.svg

    Both Belarus and Lithuania were known as north-western kraj. Prior to Russian empire Belarus and Lithuania were in the same state the Grand Duchy of Lithuania within Polish-Lithuania commonwealth.

    In other words it made sense for authorities to creat Lithuania-Beylorussian Soviet Socialist republic in 1919. :)
