MINSK, 8 March (BelTA) – In the film Women’s President on the Mir TV channel Tatiana Karpechenko, a former homeroom teacher of Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko, reminisced about a conversation with Aleksandr Lukashenko’s mother after his election as Belarusian president, BelTA has learned.

“I was returning from a store and passing by a first-aid post. I said: “What has happened, Trofimovna [Yekaterina Trofimovna Lukashenko], are you sick? And she goes: “Tatiana Nikolayevna, how can you not get sick? I am going to Minsk tomorrow, my son is going back. I said: “Okay, Trofimovna, you will go, but they won’t give him back to you – he has been elected by people,” Tatiana Karpechenko recalled with a smile.

The president’s homeroom teacher said that he meant the world to his mother: “He has been working since childhood. First he learned how to use a harrow, then a plow and a scythe.”

“All kinds of things happened, boys will be boys. Sometimes I had to be tough on them. He [the president of Belarus] was my husband’s favorite student. He taught history and he would say: “Lukashenko is my best student,” Tatiana Karpechenko said sharing her recollections.
