Tsepkalo sharply criticized the policy of Lukashenko, who has been in power in Belarus for more than 25 years.

Belarus, it seems, has turned into another planet with a different appeal. The dense atmosphere of stagnation, the lack of fresh air changes, the absence of light, beauty and smiles. Country living in the past, not the future“, – he wrote.

The Manager noted that “the biggest threat for Belarus is not the military power of NATO or Russia“, and “an inefficient economy, archaic system of government and poverty“.

Tsepkalo called on Belarusians to vote for him, promising to build a modern, economically developed and free state.

I have enough for this and the managerial and life experience!” – he stressed.

It should be noted that Tsepkalo was born in the Belarusian city of Grodno in 1965 in a family of immigrants from Ukraine. His parents, William and Nina were sent to the West of Belarus for distribution for the construction of a nitrogen plant.
