Lukashenko’s 7-year-old Son Deemed Mature Enough To Be New Leader Of Belarus
MINSK (The Global Edition) – Belarus’s president, Alexander Lukashenko, believes his seven year-old son Nikolay is “mature enough” to rule the country, Belarusian media reported today.
President Lukashenko says that Nikolay has reached a level of childhood development where his decision-making capacity is on par with his own.
Mr. Lukashenko also affirms that his son is ready to take actions that will affect the lives of the 9 million people currently living in Belarus.
“Sure, he may appear young and inexperienced, but to be perfectly honest, how difficult can it be to run a country like Belarus? I mean, I managed to do it quite successfully for almost 20 years,” Mr. Lukashenko told reporters from Narodnaya Gazeta, the largest newspaper in Belarus.
Mr. Lukashenko also explained why he wants to transfer all of his unchecked power to his 7-year-old son.
“It’s not so much that I’m tired of running the country, but more that I’m bored. There are no challenges so big that I can’t solve them with oppression. So I said to myself, why not let the kid play with it from now on?” Mr. Lukashenko added.
Gazeta also reports that the young Lukashenko seemed pretty stoked when he heard that he would be getting a real country to play with for his next birthday, and is already making big plans about what to do with it.
“I’m going to send the soldiers and the tanks and the horsies to invade Poland, and from then on I think it will be a lot more fun around here,” Nikolay said of the first command he intends to make as the country’s new supreme leader. “Also, I will order all girls to stay indoors forever. Girls are yucky,” Nikolay added.
