The Russian patronage is not enough to keep Cockroach alive for a long time.
Russian writer Viktor Yerofeev has commented on Lukashenka's statements to Russian propagandist Kiselev.
- We started talking about Ukraine, and we can't leave out Mr. Lukashenka. He recognizes Crimea as Russian. Is this the final act for him starting?
- More like the final act of his dictatorship. This is because the West has understandably stopped supporting him, and Belarus will not be able to survive for long on Russian patronage alone. So whether he recognizes Crimea or not, I would advise him to recognize Alaska. Then, maybe he would have something. He'd be ahead of the whole planet. What about recognizing the Crimea? Along with Nicaragua and three or four other countries. He is not the first. I wish he would recognize Alaska and fly there with our president-that would be cool," Yerofeev said in an interview with the Echo of Moscow.
