President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky believes that if Belarusian government keeps avoiding the dialogue with its own people, this government may be removed from power. Zelensky said so during his meeting with Zuzana Caputova, his Slovakian counterpart

Thus, Zelensky reminded his Belarusian colleague Alexander Lukashenko about the bloodshed that took place during Euromaidan protests in Kyiv early in 2014.

"If the government does not find the opportunity for the dialogue with its fellow citizens, it will be gone... We buried Ukrainians who were killed during Euromaidan. We saw people burn in buildings. What we see today? If the government does not stop its actions, especially the actions aimed against its people, there will be a very strong response from the people", Zelensky said.
