President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko stated that he does not leave the president not because he clings to power but due to the concerns that in case of his resignation, the massacre starts in the country and it will fall apart as Tut.by reported.
“The issue is not about power; the fact is that I do not want them to cut in pieces the country that I made on the wrecks of the empire, this blood-soaked piece,” Lukashenko said.

“It will be a massacre and events that happened in Ukraine – are small beer. We will have real supply,” Lukashenko said.
