Lukashenko concerned about consequences if 'young and unexperienced' Zelensky loses power in Ukraine

MINSK. Oct 8 (Interfax) - If Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky loses power in Ukraine, those who may come instead might be hard to reach compromises with, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said.

"If we lose an unexperienced and young Zelensky and this administration in Ukraine - which could well happen because resistance inside and outside of Ukraine is too strong - so if we lose them, we might have an administration instead with which it would be hard to talk," Lukashenko said at the Minsk Dialogue forum on Tuesday.

Lukashenko urged the expert community to give some serious thought to this possibility.
