MINSK, 21 July (BelTA) – I dreamed of a pan-Slavic state or unity, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said in an interview with AFP in Minsk on 21 July, BelTA has learned.

The journalist expressed the opinion that Russian President Vladimir Putin, judging by his statements, has a dream of some Slavic state.

"It was I who had a dream of a Slavic state. Once they promoted this idea of the Russian world. Since the 1990s, I have always drawn attention that there are Slavic states. Poland, Slovakia, Bulgaria and others... We should not lose this connection. Indeed, everyone has their own state. But we are Slavs. I've talked about that. Putin did not talk or dream of any pan-Slavic state. You have made this up," Aleksandr Lukashenko said.
