People's Republic of Bielorussia

On Thursday's edition of the newspaper "Le Matin" from the Romandie, there is an article about a petition in a Bielorussian town of Klietsk, already countersigned by about 170 people, asking for a transformation of the town into a principality (?!) called People's Republic of Bielorussia (principality with a Republic name, furthermore an People's Republic!). The journal says that it's really annoying for Loukachenko, as had already happened in 1918 in the same region, where a PR of Bielorussia had existed for 10 months with a white and blue flag that today's independentist leader Oleg Nikouline would re-use....The leader would like to make this principality a kind of eldorado like San Marino...
Actually, the article is taken from an other journal, the Sievodna from Bielorussia.

A.Basov (Bielorussia) reported about w-b-w flag of National Movement of 'Yatvaki'. Blue stripe means the river Sozh.

The flag of Starayatvag was published some years ago for a vex bulletin probably Gaceta de Banderas, but I don't know anything about this minority. The flags is same that national Belarusian one in this era (w-r-w) but blue instead red.
That is the difference between starayatvag and yatvagi? Who are they?

Yatvagi - small nation lived in western-baltia. After defeat in battle against duck of Lithuania they went to river Sozh (now - in Belarus). 'mladoyatvagi' (young yatvagi) and 'starayatvagi' (old yatvagi)  - two political wings of national movement.
I don`t know details, but  'starayatvagi' - more friendly to Belarus, 'mladoyatvagi' - more independentists.
