Unimaginable happened: Workers booed Lukashenko after 'you'll have to kill me'

Workers chanted 'leave' and booed Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko as he insisted he would not allow a new vote after allegations of ballot fraud.


Strike action spread to state TV, with staff walking out on Monday.

Lukashenko told workers on Monday that there would be no new presidential election after a disputed Aug. 9 vote “until you kill me”, Belarusian media reported.

“We held elections already. Until you kill me, there will be no other elections,” he was quoted by the media outlet as telling workers at a tractor plant.
