OPU explains why Lukashenko is actively meeting with leaders of different countries
The main thing Lukashenko wants is to stay in his chair for longer.
Alexander Lukashenko, who calls himself president of Belarus, has started to actively travel abroad and meet the leaders of other countries. Thus he wants to find a new patronage for himself instead of the Russian one. This opinion was expressed by Advisor to the Head of the President's Office Mikhail Podolyak during a telethon.
Podolyak notes that Lukashenko's trips around the world are more like a hysteria, as he realized that "Putin's Russia" has exhausted itself, and very soon he will have no one to patronize him.
Lukashenko wants to get a patron so that he can stay in his position for some time. Because the processes that will begin after the war, when the Russian elite will disappear, and part of it will be in the dock, he wants to sit this very time," said the presidential advisor.
According to Podolyak, Lukashenko is looking for new allies, new partners who "put in a good word for him.
It should be noted that Alexander Lukashenko is scheduled to pay an official visit to Iran on March 12-13. He will meet there with the leader of that country.
In early March, he flew to China to sign a number of cooperation agreements with Beijing. There, Lukashenka pledged China's support for Minsk on "all sensitive issues.
At the end of January, Lukashenka paid a visit to Zimbabwe and presented the African country with a tractor.
