Russian TV: Lukashenka might have held negotiations on asylum for Yanukovych


It's possible that the dictator and the son of the ousted president of Ukraine had a conversation.

This version was proposed by the Russian REN TV channel, which raised the topic of Vovan's prank of Lukashenka. The story was shown on The Week with Marianna Maksimovskaya.

“All say that Lukashenka got infuriated when he learnt it was a prank. However, another version appeared that the conversation between Lukashenka and Yanukovych junior was real. It was recorded by secret services and leaked it to the press. The version with the pranker was invented later to distract attention,” the programme host said.

The pranker said in an interview with REN TV that he had no plans to visit Belarus in the near future, because he fears the arrest and revenge from the dictator.

The Belarusian dictator became a victim of Vovan a week ago. The pranker introduced himself as the son of former Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych and asked Lukashenka to give asylum for his father. The Belarusian dictator agreed to grant asylum.

The ruler ordered to find and punish the pranker. He ordered to send him to fodder harvesting works. Lukashenka warned if the pranker was not found, the heads of the KGB and the presidential administration would go to work in the field. The adjutant, who put the pranker through to Lukashneka, was already punished.
