Belarus president shares childhood dreams

MINSK, 26 May (BelTA) – Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko shared his childhood dreams during the meeting with students “Youth: A Look into the Future” on 26 May, BelTA has learned.

“Back then [as a child] I did not dream about becoming a president. I could never imagine that. First, there were no presidents in that country. We had general secretaries. But I did not think about becoming a general secretary either,” the head of state said.

 “To be honest: I had one single wish. The village where I lived was not very developed, and I saw how the people struggled, how they lived. I had one immense desire to take an area, a farm and do something good for these people,” Alexander Lukashenko noted.

The president said that he also dreamed about professional sport, in particular, football. “I loved football so much and I wanted to be a great player. But I did not train with a professional team and a coach. I had no such opportunity. We played the way we could and knew,” the Belarusian leader said.
