Alexander Lukashenko

Alexander Grigoryevich Lukashenko or Alyaksandr Ryhoravich Lukashenka (Belarusian: Аляксандр Рыгоравіч Лукашэнка, Alyaksandr Ryhoravich Lukashenka IPA: [alʲaˈksand(a)r rɨˈɣɔravʲitʂ lukaˈʂɛnka], Russian: Александр Григорьевич Лукашенко, Aleksandr Grigoryevich Lukashenko IPA: [ɐlʲɪˈksandr ɡrʲɪˈɡorʲjɪvʲɪtɕ ɫʊkɐˈʂɛnkə]; born 30 August 1954) is a Belarusian politician and army officer who has served as the first and only president of Belarus since the establishment of the office 26 years ago, on 20 July 1994. Before launching his political career, Lukashenko worked as director of a state farm (sovkhoz), and served in the Soviet Border Troops and in the Soviet Army. Lukashenko opposed economic shock therapy during the post-Soviet transition, which in the short-term generally spared Belarus from recessions as devastating as those in other post-Soviet states like Russia, though at the cost of reduced long-term growth.
