The team of the Belarusian President won the first game of the final series of the Republican Ice Hockey League. In Minsk-based Olympic Arena the team of the head of state beat the Minsk Oblast team 5:2.

After the march the President talked to reporters.

Aleksandr Lukashenko watched live coverage of the return of the Belarusian cosmonaut Marina Vasilevskaya and other members of the Soyuz MS-24 crew from the International Space Station and shared his emotions.

“The heaviest emotions. Because I didn’t sleep well last night. I watched the undocking of the reentry module live,” the President said.

When asked whether he was worrying, Aleksandr Lukashenko said: “When your kids are in outer space, you will understand what it means when a Belarusian woman, a citizen of Belarus is in outer space. Certainly, I was responsible for anything that may have happened, god forbid. This is why I am certainly glad that everything went routinely. I rewatched the footage several times. I am very pleased that everything is over. And I thought to myself: well, I will not play this game anymore.”
