French actor Gerard Depardieu, despite being branded a ‘threat to national security’ in Ukraine, still has friends in high places in Belarus.

The pair passed the time scything grass before feasting on traditional Belarusian food and home-distilled vodka.

The visit comes ahead of the country’s presidential election, which Mr Lukashenko is widely expected to win.
