Belarus among poorest countries in Europe

Last year Belarus ranked 12th in the list of the poorest countries of the European continent in terms of GDP per capita. According to the rating, which was created by the Vividmaps service, almost all our neighbors or “colleagues” from the Soviet Union turned out to be close to our country.

The poorest country in the ranking was Moldova. The GDP income per capita here was $ 5,661. Ukraine is in second place with $ 8,713. Third place went to Armenia — $ 9,456 per person.

Belarus is on the 12th place in the rating with an income of $ 18,931.


The ranking also includes Latvia, which is in 16th place with per capita income of $ 27,644, Russia is in 18th place with $ 27,834, and Poland in the 20th place with $ 29,521.

The only neighbor of Belarus that was not included in the rating is Lithuania, whose per capita GDP was about $ 32,300.
