MINSK, 4 June (BelTA) – Many things for which Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko was criticized were just an attempt to put pressure on him, Roman Protasevich told the ONT TV channel on 3 June, BelTA has learned.

“I will not hide it, I criticized Aleksandr Lukashenko a lot, because it seemed that I had reasons for it. I have been a journalist my entire life. However, the more I was moving from journalism into politics, the more I wanted to get out of there. And then it became clear to me that many things Aleksandr Lukashenko was criticized for were just attempts to pressure him. And that in many situations he acted like a man with balls of steel (pardon my language), despite all the pressure and so on,” Roman Protasevich said.
