Some better-off peasants because the land was much cheaper there (my family actually did that) - unless the government would provide sufficiently fat subsidies and that wasn't going to happen.
What about settling in Belarusian cities such as Minsk?

Only if they were able to find work there. But Minsk was part of the Russian economy so unlikely.

Its economy can be reoriented towards Poland in due time, no?
