Russia is not against sharing its experience in changing the Constitution with Belarus. This was stated by Dmitry Peskov, the press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin.

Earlier, the incumbent president of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, said that new elections in the country would be possible only after amendments to the Constitution were made.

“Of course, why not share your experience, especially since this is a fresh experience, rich enough and expert. This is evidenced by the results of the vote for the amendments”, - Interfax quotes Peskov.

The presidential press secretary called the very technologies of voting for amendments to the Constitution secondary. Primary, according to him, is the very essence of these amendments, which correspond to the trends of the times and the specifics of the state, as evidenced by the fact that the changes received great support among the population. Peskov added that Moscow has no doubts that the leadership of Belarus and the involved Belarusian experts are able to independently propose amendments to the Constitution, but if such assistance is required from Russia, it can be provided. “Russia cannot and will not impose its assistance without an appropriate appeal”, - Peskov added.

When asked if Moscow advised to add to the Constitution in essence, Peskov also replied that he had no right to advise, since the essence of the amendments to the Belarusian Constitution concerns only the Belarusian people, and Russia should not interfere in this regard.

Earlier, Lukashenko said that the country is already preparing changes to the Constitution, including the involvement of judges of the Constitutional Court. It is noted that there are no plans to return to the 1994 edition, but Lukashenko does not exclude that the "somewhat authoritarian", in his words, system of life in the country may be changed.
