President of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, has lost the support of majority within the country, he has no support outside of Belarus. This statement was made by the chairman of the United Civil Party, Anatoly Lebedko. According to the UCP leader, there has not been such a situation over all 16 years of Belarusian leader's governing. So, now Alexander Lukashenko is creating a coalition against Russia, opposition politician believes.

«That’s why there appeared both Chavez and Saakashvili (the president of Venezuela, Hugo Chavez, and the president of Georgia, Mikheil Saakashvili — Telegraf). Today, it is extremely important for him to find support of reformers to create a coalition with a general orientation — against Russia. He needs such a coalition in post-Soviet area first of all», Nezavisimaya Gazeta quotes Anatoly Lebedko.

«It does not matter who becomes his ally», the chairman of the UCP said. «Lukashenko found one of them earlier, this is Bakiyev (former president of Kyrgyzstan, Kurmanbek Bakiyev — Telegraf), whom he introduced to the Belarusians as a poor exile with no money. And then, there appeared information about millions of dollars, missing in Kyrgyzstan, and Bakiyev’s son was announced wanted by the Kyrgyz authorities, as involved in the disappearance of government property».

According to Anatoly Lebedko, after that, «even Belarusian officials have a negative attitude to Lukashenko’s decision to give a shelter for Bakiyev». «Power vertical, created by his wn, has staggered. And elections’ time is coming», the UCP leader summed up.
