Factory workers in Minsk greeted Lukashenka with a shout “Go away”

On the morning of August 17, President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko addressed the workers of the Minsk Wheel Tractor Plant (MZKT). Employees of the enterprise greeted him with shouts of “Go away!” and “Let it out!”, follows from the video of the opposition telegram channel “Nexta Live”.

“Thank you,” Lukashenka said in response, standing on the site of two military tractors. – I answer you this question: you can still shout.


Lukashenko flew to the plant by helicopter. As Tut.by previously reported, the President of Belarus first spoke in one of the workshops in front of a small group of specially selected people. The rest of the workers at that time were waiting for Lukashenka at another site.

During a conversation with employees of the plant, Lukashenko said that Belarus is working on options for amending the Constitution, providing for the redistribution of power. Lukashenka noted that he is ready to share his presidential powers, “but not under pressure or across the street.”

Lukashenka also said that Belarus will not be satisfied with new presidential elections. “Until you kill me, there will be no other elections,” Tut.by quotes Lukashenka as saying.

Before the performance of Alexander Lukashenko at Minsk Wheel Tractor Plant employees of other industrial enterprises have been marching to the territory of the plant. The members of the column chanted “Go away.”

Since August 9, mass protest actions have been held in Belarus against Alexander Lukashenko, who ran for a sixth presidential term and, according to preliminary data from the CEC, won the elections again. Among other things, shares are held at enterprises. On August 16, the largest rally in the history of the country was held in Minsk, which was attended by 200 thousand people.
