MINSK, 1 December (BelTA) – President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy is definitely a political misfit, Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko said in an interview with Dmitry Kiselyov, Director General of the Russian state news agency MIA Rossiya Segodnya, BelTA has learned.

The interview also mentioned Oleksandr Turchynov who was Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine and Chairperson of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine in 2014 and acted virtually as the head of state. Before that, he had led a Protestant church called Slovo Zhizni, or “Word of Life”, and was thrust into the political spotlight during the civil war and the coup d'etat.

“I knew what kind of person he was. Well, he is no politician. He is just a person who accidentally got into this mess. I think that he is a political misfit. Volodya [Volodymyr] Zelenskyy also turned out to be a political misfit entirely, though he is the head of state,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.
