  1. What i do in these circumstances: I find the alphabet on Google. In this case you'd have to find the Belorussian alphabet. Then feed the words into an online translator. I have done it a few times and it has worked.

  2. Hi! Lisca is right that the stamp says Belarus. However, the text on the postcard is written in Russian, my second language. It says: "Vitebsk. Memorial complex dedicated to Soviet freedom fighters, partisans, and resistance workers of Vitebsk, located on Victory Square." Vitebsk, like many Soviet cities, suffered a lot during WWII.
