Chávez in Belarus

Hugo Chávez is in Belarus as part of his current international tour:

“Belarus is a model of a social state, which we are also building,” Mr. Chávez told reporters at the Minsk airport at the start of a two-day visit. “We must defend the interests of the individual and not the hegemonic interests of the capitalists, wherever they may be, in Europe or Latin America.”

Now, when I think of countries in which "the interests of the individual" are defended, Belarus really doesn't come to mind.

That depends on who the individual is.
