Belarusian President, not recognized by the West, Aliaksandr Lukashenka, says he focused on discussing “defense issues” during his last meeting with Vladimir Putin in Sochi.
“My older brother and I agreed on how we would behave in Belarus. Of course, we do not announce this publicly. Our last negotiations on your territory were devoted to defense and security,” said A. Lukashenka during a meeting with the governor of Krasnoyarsk. His words were quoted by the Belarusian state agency BelTA.
A. Lukashenko, as usual, made baseless accusations against the West. Moscow and Minsk, he said, are particularly concerned about Poland’s actions.
“Ukraine is just the beginning, these are flowers. The berries could be waiting for us next, if we do not mobilize and show them that the little one will not appear. Russia and I are very worried about Poland, and America is behind Poland. They decided to destroy everything here, first of all the European Union. The main starting point is Poland. In 2020 they wanted to connect us there for us to be the dividing line between Russia, East and West, but it did not work, that’s why we now pay a lot of attention to the defense industry,” said A. Lukashenka.
He met with Russian President V. Putin last week in Sochi.
A. Lukashenka is a close ally of Moscow in the war against Ukraine. Among other things, he allows the use of his country’s territory for Russian attacks on neighboring Ukraine.
