The head of state was once again asked about the prospects for abolishing the death penalty in Belarus. “There will be no moratorium because I do not have the right to impose it. We took this decision [to retain the death penalty] at a referendum and thus we can abolish it only by holding a referendum,” he said.
Developing allied relations does not imply the loss of sovereignty, Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko said in an interview with Russian journalist, editor-in-chief, host of the Echo of Moscow radio station Aleksei Venediktov.
Aleksandr Lukashenko said: “Life has to force us to take certain steps. Just like it has been done up till now. We've never molded or torpedoed anything. There has been no fake news or hype about it. Up till now. We should calmly come to terms."
Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko held a working meeting with Head of the Belarus President Property Management Directorate Viktor Sheiman. The president was informed about the preliminary results for the year in the work of the organizations and enterprises affiliated with the directorate.
The judge said: “The head of state has decided in favor of development of a special law on amnesty due to the 75th anniversary of the victory in the Great Patriotic War. The Supreme Court in association with the Internal Affairs Ministry will take care of the task.”
