He is doing this in two ways: 1) He is trying to lend the Kremlin a helping hand by claiming to have intercepted German chats proving that the Navalny poisoning was fabricated in order to discourage Russia from intervening in Belarus on Lukashenko's behalf (a weak argument, at best); and 2) By cutting a deal with Russia to potentially re-direct oil flows from Lithuania to the Russian port of Ust-Luga. This is, in part, Lukashenko's retaliation over European sanctions due to electoral fraud allegations, for which he threatened to cut off European transit routes.
