 Seemingly all the opposition leaders of Belarus had arrived to Yerevan on March 16-18, 2015, when the EURONEST PA 4th ordinary session convened in Armenia. Anyway the Belarusian delegation that participated in meeting of the EURANEST “Working Group on Belarus” maintained some 7-8 members. For sure they were the most attractive and interesting guests of Parliamentary Assembly, at least because very little is known abroad about the political life and leaders of Belarus. Still in contrary to Alexander Lukashenka, who never ascended from rustic nature and custom, it appears there are other leaders in Belarus with almost aristocratic education, amiability, charm and experience - like Alexander Milinkevich.
