It is interesting that in 2010 some changes were made in the biography of Alexander Lukashenko posted on his official website: his date of birth was changed from 30 to 31 August 1954.

As the presidential administration explained to BelaPAN news agency at that time, the date was changed because Alexander Lukashenkos mother arrived at hospital in the evening on August 30, but gave birth to her son after midnight.

In the 50s in hospitals in rural areas no one bothered to note the exact birth time. So it was indicated that the baby was born on August 30, when the mother arrived. The president never paid attention to it until his youngest son Nikolay was born on August 31. After that the president talked to his mother and found out that he actually should celebrate on August 31.
