Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said last month via Belarusian Telegraph Agency, BelTA, that World Bank and IMF offered him a bribe of $940 million USD in the form of “Covid Relief Aid.” In exchange for the $940 million USD in aid, the World Bank and IMF demanded that the President of Belarus:
• Impose “extreme lockdown on his people”
• Force them to wear face masks
• Impose very strict curfews
• Impose a police state
• Crash the economy
Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko refused the offer. Good for him.
