Lukashenka Is Dramatically Weakening

Lukashenka Is Dramatically Weakening

The dictator abandons the events and rituals that he has followed for years.

The UDF news publisher gives several examples showing that the physical form of Aliaksandr Lukashenka is far from ideal at the moment.

He stopped harvesting in his garden

At the end of August, the Belarusian and foreign media traditionally flew over shots of Lukashenka and his inner circle either picking watermelons or digging potatoes. But this year, the dictator refused to harvest in his personal garden - at least his press service did not report anything about this.

True, already last year it was clear that physical work was not easy for Lukashenka.

Often leans on the table

It was clear that the dictator seemed to be constantly looking for something to lean on during the last inspections of enterprises. So, after visiting the Minsk Mechanical Plant named after S.I. Vavilov, the management company of the BelOMO holding, Lukashenka's press service distributed a whole series of pictures of the politician's behaviour of the same type.

On September 1, he refused to visit educational institutions

Traditionally, on Knowledge Day, Lukashenka visited various educational institutions - schools or universities. So a few years ago, while conducting the first lesson for high school students at a new school in Minsk, he said that the Tesla electric car was allegedly given to him by Elon Musk personally.

But this year, it was not Lukashenka who went to the students, but they went to him - to the Palace of Independence, where the dictator talked with them for a long time, sitting in an armchair.

Outdoor speech to reporters - also in a sitting position

Ever since the 90s, Lukashenka has been following a fairly clear business trip format, during which he not only “inspects” the territory and communicates with officials (and less and less with ordinary workers), but also answers a variety of (albeit pre-approved) questions before leaving close to him journalists.

He did all this in a field version - exclusively standing. But a week ago, after getting acquainted with the construction of the museum in the Khatyn memorial complex, Lukashenka sat down on a chair and seated young journalists on benches there.

Does Lukashenka play hockey now?

There has long been no evidence of fidelity to your favourite hobby on the part of the head of the country. The last time Lukashenka played hockey was reported in April: then he got hit in the face with a stick in the final match of the Republican amateur competition.

The sequential season of the amateur ice hockey championship in Minsk started recently and Aliaksandr Lukashenka plays there, but not a well-known politician, but his grandson, the son of Viktar Lukashenka.

It is also noteworthy that the ruler of Belarus did not play hockey with Vladimir Putin during his recent visit to Sochi, and before they liked to play hockey together.

Lukashenka's press service has not reported anything about the politician's health for a long time

Although informing about the well-being of leaders is a common thing in democratic countries. Even the information that the ruler of Belarus had contracted coronavirus for the second time appeared due to Lukashenka's statements. he has mentioned in passing during a meeting at the beginning of this year.

Meanwhile, evidence of the poor health of the politician has been appearing for more than a year. In 2021, among other things, videos were published in which Lukashenka could hardly move.

Apparently, Lukashenka's health has not improved over the past year.
