The authoritarian president of Belarus has rejected a prospective law against domestic violence as Western "nonsense," saying that physical punishment could be "useful" in raising children.

President Alexander Lukashenko said a draft bill criminalizing domestic violence needs more work. He told journalists Friday that he is personally against the physical punishment of children, but added that a "good belting could sometimes be useful for a kid."

"It's just nonsense taken from the West," he said. "We will proceed exclusively from our own interests, our Belarusian Slavic traditions, and our life experience."

The president cited his own experience, saying he frequently punished his oldest son and that served as a good lesson for his younger son.

This explains quite a bit about Belarus, actually...
