Stanisław Bułak Bałachowicz (Станіслаў Булак-Балаховіч; 12 November 1883 — 16 May 1955) was a Belarusian military officer and revolutionary. Originally fighting for the Russian Empire during World War I, Bałachowicz was a field commander, due to being of noble ancestry and having good tactical skills. After the German Empire established what was originally a puppet state, the Belarusian People's Republic, he served in it, largely being the one who organized the Belarusian National Army. He led Belarusian formations in aid of the White forces during the Russian Civil War, which the Whites ended up winning.
