Lukashenko seeks Putin's help in attempt to survive mass protests
Al Jazeera, 15 Sep 2020
Russia has agreed to a $1.5bn loan with Minsk, President Vladimir Putin said at talks on Monday with Belarusian leader Alexander Lukashenko, in their first face-to-face meeting since protests in the former Soviet state escalated.
But Vladimir Putin also said that issues should be resolved by the Belarusian people themselves, without foreign interference.
