Putin takes Belarus president Lukashenko skiing in Sochi
CA, 23 Feb 2021
Russian President Vladimir Putin took Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko skiing at the mountain resort of Krasnaya Polyana near the Black Sea resort of Sochi following a working meeting between the two countries.
The pair hit the snowy slopes and also rode snowmobiles down the mountain.
During his visit, Lukashenko thanked Putin for the economic support after Russia provided Belarus with a $1.5 billion loan last September in a gesture of support for Lukashenko as protesters took to the streets across Belarus following an Aug. 9 election which opponents say was rigged.
