Lukashenko pointed out possible problems over imminent expiration of Zelenskyy's powers

Answering questions from journalists in the Kremlin, President of Belarus Aleksandr Lukashenko pointed out possible problems in connection with the imminent expiration of the powers of President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy


Aleksandr Lukashenko was asked whether he believes that Ukraine will come to its senses soon. “I feel what is happening in Ukraine,” he said. “I do not want Volodymyr Zelenskyy to take offense at me, I told President Putin about that yesterday, made comparisons. We are attentively observing what is happening in Ukraine. The main thing is what is taking place within the country. At the beginning of the special military operation, Volodymyr Zelenskyy was supported by almost 98 percent, but figures vary at present: some say he is supported by 34 percent of the population, and the latest data from Russians speaks of about 14 percent. Zaluzhny enjoys the highest rating: 35 percent, which is also not high. You can see a decline, if we speak of the president.”

Aleksandr Lukashenko also recalled that Volodymyr Zelenskyy's term of office ends in May, and this may create a problem of the legitimacy of potential agreements, “A situation may arise when Putin, for example, will say, “Well, who should I sign an agreement with? The powers of the President of Ukraine have expired." We may sign an agreement with him today, but then another person will come to power tomorrow, and he will dislike this. Actually, they know how to do it, we can judge by the Minsk agreements. Remember: they will throw it all away and say, “It was signed by the illegitimate president, I do not know this at all!"

The Head of State believes that such a situation can really happen. “Especially, God forbid, if Petro Poroshenko [ex-president of Ukraine] will come to power. He will say, “I know nothing of this, and I do not want to know anything.” Then Americans will put pressure on his pocket (billions [of Dollars] always seem necessary to be spent) and say, "Continue the war." The war will continue. Therefore, as the first President of Russia said, there is some kind of squiggle.
