President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko commented on the participation of Slovak diplomat Jozef Migaš in the Victory Day celebrations in Minsk, after which he was dismissed from his post as the Slovak ambassador to Belarus.


The Belarusian leader called Migaš’s deed respectable, stressing that he does not understand the position of official Bratislava.

This is actually an international scandal. He grew up in a patriotic family. As far as I know, his father fought Nazism and was a partisan. He frankly spoke about it. How can this person be criticized?, the Belarusian head od state said during a meeting with the Serbian Ambassador Veljko Kovačević.

Lukashenko notedthat punishing people for such things is unacceptable.
