The Belarusian alphabet is written in a version of cyrillic. Surface Languages allows you to learn either using Cyrliic or by using a romanized version of the Belarusian aplhabet.
Belarusian has historically been written using the Latin (and arabic) alphanets. Łacinka is the common name of the several historical alphabets used to write Belarusian (Cyrillic) text in Latin or romanized script. Łacinka is similar to the Sorbian alphabet, incorporating features of the Polish and Czech alphabets including diacritics such as ś and ż.
Belarusian is closely related to Russian and distinguished by a characteristic sound pattern and large numbers of Polish loan words.
Most (almost all?) Belarussians also speak Russian fluently - perhaps in a way comparable to the use of Welsh in Wales.
