Belarus: NATO Governments Plan $500 Million Election Takeover

MINSK, Apr 10, 2001 -- (RFE/RL) Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko on 6 April said the West is planning to allot $500 million for candidates who will challenge him in this year's presidential ballot in Belarus, Belapan reported.

Lukashenko said he obtained this information from former Russian Prime Minister Yevgenii Primakov.

According to Lukashenko, the Belarusian presidential elections will also be crucial for the fate of Russia.

"We may not, we do not have the right to lose this [presidential] campaign. If we lose these elections, Russia's days will be counted," he noted.
