Was Lukashenko Expelled?
Charter 97 is saying that Belarus Leader Lukashenko was expelled from Moscow before the celebrations this week of the 60th anniversary of the victory in World War II…
“The rumour runs that in reality the situation was more difficult. In fact, Lukashenka has been expelled from Russia. And it was the American side who insisted on that. Its representatives allegedly stated that George Bush does not want to see “dictator Lukashenka” close to him,” the “Moskovskiy Komsomolets” writes.
“Lukashenka’s haste leaving for Minsk was caused by the wish of the Kremlin to avoid a scandal between the hot Belarusian leader and the American leader, who had censured the official Minsk for its policy recently,” the German newspaper “Financial Times Deutschland” wrote.
