Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko gifted tractors to his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin on the occasion of his 70th birthday, the state-run Belta news agency reported on Friday.
When asked what kind of tractor he gave Putin as a gift, Lukashenka replied, “Belarusian tractor,” which he himself uses in his own garden. He added that he would give a seeding machine as a gift to the tractor.
“Then we will grow grain, maybe something else. It can be used for several things. We grow food. In this way, Duda (Polish President Andrzej Duda) and Moravki (Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki) and Europe will not starve, there will be no need to steal bread from Ukraine” , said Lukasinka in St. Petersburg, where he is taking part in a one-day informal meeting of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS).
According to local reports, at the meeting in St. Petersburg, Lukashenka handed Putin jar papers – Belarus 1523.3. The photo of the papers was also posted on the Telegram channel called Pul Pervogo.
The Minsk Tractor Plant (MTZ), the manufacturer of the tractor, said on Telegram that the vehicle itself is being assembled, and added that the driver’s cab windows are darkened, and an air conditioner is installed in the cab.
Tractor production in Belarus was already one of the most important industries in the Baltic country even during the Soviet Union.
Four years ago, Lukashenka—who was the head of a producing cooperative during the Soviet Union—presented Putin with four sacks of home-grown potatoes for the Christmas holidays.
