Lukashenko shares details of communication with Putin after Moscow concert attack 

MINSK, 25 March (BelTA) – At a meeting with Governor of Russia’s Omsk Oblast Vitaly Khotsenko, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said that he kept in touch with Russian President Vladimir Putin during 24 hours after the terrorist attack near Moscow, BelTA has learned.

The head of state noted that less than a week passed since the presidential election in Russia, and the election results are already known. Aleksandr Lukashenko congratulated the Russian governor and all other Russian governors on such election results. He emphasized that such results would not have been achieved without their participation.

“But, as time shows, we cannot lower our guard under any circumstances. There will be relentless attempts to pressure and destabilize us, bring us to our knees. We discussed this with President Putin in the run-up to the presidential election. They will not leave us alone, and we will see more stories that will be increasingly confusing and complex, unfortunately, as the recent events in Moscow Oblast have shown,” the Belarusian head of state said.

The president noted that in this difficult time, governors also bear a special burden of responsibility, including when it comes to ensuring security. This is evidenced by the tragic events in Moscow Oblast.

“President Putin and I were in touch day and night. We worked very closely. You know the outcomes. This is exactly the way how the two presidents and special services should work in the Union State,” said Aleksandr Lukashenko.
