Belarusian leader wasn't allowed to seat in a one box with Yanukovych and European leaders.
In the main VIP box of the Kiev stadium were the presidents of Poland and Italy, Italian and Spanish prime ministers and the president of Ukraine. Presidents of Georgia, Armenia and Belarus had seats in the next. Thus the Ukrainian diplomacy came out from the sticky situation. European leaders did not want to sit next to the "Europe's last dictator". "The stadium in Kiev is so big, that not everyone can fit in it", Polish president joked.
The head of Belarus brought his son Kolya, who recently in Venezuela was once again named as his successor, although officially Belarus is Republic.
Judging from the photos, Mikhail Saakashvili actively communicated with Lukashenko, joked.
In "the Box of the Eastern Partnership" minor persons of the Ukrainian administration could be seen, for example Kivalov , the head of the CEC since the Orange Revolution, who then earned the nickname "Pidrahuy", i.e in Ukrainian "Podschetchik" (Counter).
Before the game Bronislaw Komorowski met with the Ukrainian opposition and President Viktor Yanukovych, whom he thanked for the organization of Euro 2012 held in Poland and Ukraine. He also called for Ukraine to integrate into Europe: "Ukraine - forward! And for me, "Ukraine - forward" the strive for European integration, integration with the West", Polish medias inform.
