Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko defended his grip on power

Marking a year into his sixth term, President Lukashenko used his annual press conference to slam the opposition and deny his country’s involvement in the death of a Belarusian activist, who was found hanged in Ukraine last week.

Belarus’s president Alexander Lukashenko said the UK can “choke” on sanctions, in a rare televised press conference, adding that they are “American lapdogs”
