Alexander Lukashenko has, for the first time, spoken out on the controversy surrounding the Belarusian participation in the Eurovision Song Contest 2021.
Two days ago the EBU came with the following statement:

Lukashenko views this as yet another attack from foreign forces on Belarus , in what he sees as attempts to destabalise the country and overthrow him.
And Eurovision is no exception, as he comments: “They are starting to press us on all fronts. Even at Eurovision, I see”
Before laying out the way to go from here and add another accusatory comment:
We’ll make another song. You see that this is all politicized.
There is currently not update on the status of said song.
