Lukashenko visited one of the polling stations with his son and cast his ballot in a box.
"You know very well my position and I am not going to deviate from my main principle, and it's not just mine. Many have such a main principle for governing - everything should be quiet and without revolutions," he said.
"I don't think our elections, and not only the elections, can bring an improvement in our relations with the West. They will happen only when the West wants this itself," the president said.
He also said that Russia will remain Belarus' main partner. "Russia has always been with us economically and politically, they are not just our friend but our brothers, whether anyone likes it or not."
