Belarusian leader Alyaksandr Lukashenka says he does not plan to ask for money from Russia when he holds talks in Moscow with President Vladimir Putin on February 22.

I've grown to like Lukashenkao. He's has had some unearned negative press. I don't understand. He runs free and fair elections after all.

Well, maybe I do. I'll give him 6 out 10 for style points. He did not use ballot drop boxes. He did not allow ballots to be received after lection day. He scrubbed the voter rolls of the dearly departed. He did not allow vote by mail.

May young Lukashenka could sit on Uncle Joe Biden's knee and get schooled on how to run a fair election? After all Joe like kids better than people. Luka will need to wear a 3 lock box.
