Ilya Lukashevich (Belarusian: Ілья Лукашэвіч; Russian: Илья Лукашевич; born 1 August 1998) is a Belarusian professional footballer. As of 2019, he plays for Proleter Novi Sad in the Serbian SuperLiga.
Born in capital Minsk, he was a product of the FC Minsk academy where he played since 2012. His first experience as senior was in 2015 when he was included in FC Minsk reserves squad. He then debuted for Minsk main team in the 2017 Belarusian Premier League with 2 appearances, but already next season he became regular, finishing the year with 22 appearances. His regular games made him become consistent call at the Belarussian U21 team, and with his team Minsk finishing season 11th, he called the attention of major clubs opting to sign for ambitious Torpedo-BelAZ Zhodino which had finished 5th, one place away from a Europa League qualifiers spot. At Torpedo, his status as promissing youngster made coaches to choose to play it safe favoring more experienced players instead, and Lukashevich decided to leave as soon as summer transfers-window opened. His absence of appearances during the entire spring limited his options, and his choice ended up being abroad, accepting a contract with Serbian top-flight side FK Proleter Novi Sad after successful trials. He debuted in the 2019–20 Serbian SuperLiga on September 14, in a home game against usual title contenders FK Partizan in what ended being a 0–3 defeat, and also his only appearance during the first half of the season. Knowingly a league tough for foreigners because of its strict limits while inundated with players from countries from the region that count as foreigners and usually occupy the already limited spots, Football Federation of Belarus has been following the work of Lukashevich, and despite his absence of chances at his latest two clubs, has been appreciated his quality and included him in the calls for their national youth team.
Lukashevich has been a presence at Belarussian youth national teams ever since 2016 when his talent archived notoriety at FC Minsk. After passing trough Belarus U19 level, it is since 2018 that his presence has been regular at Belarusian U21 squad.
