Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said that the secret inauguration of Alexander Lukashenko does not make him the legitimate president of Belarus. Kuleba wrote about this on Twitter.

“Ukraine has never in any way interfered in the internal affairs of Belarus and will always support the Belarusian people. Considering the course of the election campaign in Belarus and subsequent events, today's 'inauguration' of Alexander Lukashenko does not mean his recognition as the legitimate head of the Belarusian state,” the minister said.

This morning, September 23, newly elected President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko held a secret inauguration at the Palace of Independence in Minsk.

As we reported before, authorities of Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, Slovakia, and Estonia have not recognized Alexander Lukashenko as head of the Republic of Belarus.

"Lukashenko is responsible for the presidential elections in Belarus which were neither free nor fair. Slovakia supports the citizens of Belarus," Slovak Foreign Minister Ivan Korcok said.

In his turn, Estonian Foreign Minister Urmas Reinsalu called Lukashenko's inauguration illegitimate and contradictory to democratic principles.
