Associations

There are several dependent Associations under the Royal Office.

The Belarus Monarchist Association

Arms of the Belarus Monarchist AssociationThe Belarus Monarchist Association is the membership association for those wishing to support monarchical restoration in Belarus and the Royal House Polanie-Patrikios in exile. Key to its immediate aims is that the people of Belarus, including those in diaspora, should have the opportunity to decide for themselves, through a referendum or other means, whether they wish to see a return to monarchism. The Association also believes that Belarus should seek its monarchist destiny as a fully independent nation with its own monarch and indigenous church and not as a part of a restored Russian Empire or as a satellite of the Russian Orthodox Church.
