The website of the President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko did not publish his answer to the question about the next presidential term. At a press conference with Vladimir Putin on February 18, Kommersant correspondent Andrei Kolesnikov asked Mr. Lukashenko how he assessed “the chances of the Belarusian people to lose him.” Alexander Lukashenko replied that these chances are “more and more insignificant.”
“As for, excuse me, my presidency, now we will consult with our older brother and decide! What are you worried about? Everything will be fine,” the President of Belarus added. This response is not published in the official transcript on his website. It is also not on the website of the Belarusian state agency BelTA.
