The head of the state announced the removal of certain functions from the president of Belarus and transfering them to the government and other authorities.
"Since there has been a lot of talk lately about the redistribution of powers, it is clear that someone lacks them, but basically this is correct: the government and other authorities need to be loaded, remove unusual issues from the president. Recently I received a note: they offer to, if I may say so, transfer from the president to all levels of power," the head of the state said.
As we reported before, the European Union plans to impose sanctions against President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko.
"The council’s conclusions on Belarus that EU foreign ministers will approve on Monday are quite ambitious. It is explicitly mentioned that Lukashenko might be sanctioned next and opens up for increased eco support and there is an opportunity to strengthen support and dialogue on visa-free travel if the country moves to democracy,” the journalist noted.
