Blame Germany

And Sweden too:

[Belarus] President Aleksander Lukashenko said Sweden and Germany should be blamed for everything that goes wrong in his republic because he used these two countries as models when setting his political goals.

....“If we are doing something wrong we are not to blame, but rather you, because we have learnt from you,” Lukashenko said when receiving credentials from newly-appointed Swedish ambassador.

Lukashenko is often called by media the last European dictator for his authoritarian policy. All Belarus officials have been banned from entering the countries of the European Union since 2002, together with former Yugoslav president Slobodan Milosevic and Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe.
