On February 22, talks between Alexander Lukashenko and Vladimir Putin will take place in Sochi. Analyst Sergei Chaly told what to expect from the meeting of the Belarusian and Russian leaders.
The attention of the press is riveted on the upcoming meeting of Vladimir Putin and Alexander Lukashenko. The event will take place on February 22 in Sochi.
Independent analyst Sergei Chaly discussed what to expect from the talks between the leaders of the two states. The expert said that he does not rule out surprises.
According to the political scientist, there are reasons to believe that Lukashenko will persistently ask the Kremlin to stop putting pressure on the Belarusian authorities, as well as to stop demanding the transit of power and the implementation of constitutional reform. At the same time, Old Man will continue to prove that he is the only person who controls the situation in the republic.
Chaly suggested that Lukashenko would not disdain to use manipulative rhetoric. “Stop pressure on us, otherwise we … will quarrel with you once again,” the analyst said during a stream on his YouTube channel.
We will remind, earlier the press secretary of the Russian president Dmitry Peskov said that there will be “very long negotiations.” At the same time, he did not indicate which issue would become a priority.
