President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko said that “everything is now in the hands of Ukraine” and if the conflict is not stopped, it will be destroyed. According to him, if Kyiv does not want people to die, it must take the path of negotiations.
“If they (Ukrainian authorities.— “b”) do not want people to die, moreover, in huge numbers, then the conflict must be stopped. It is difficult, difficult, difficult, but it is necessary, if they want it, to recover. We need to stop, we need to stop this. Because further will be the complete destruction of Ukraine,”— said Mr. Lukashenko, answering questions from Russian journalists on the sidelines of the CSTO summit in Yerevan.
According to him, diplomatic relations prevail in the modern world, countries “are ready not just to talk, but to cooperate, to be friends.” “Wherever you throw it, peace talks are everywhere,” said the President of Belarus.
“And here we will manage, we will make it all right. We will probably be able to explain, even now our generation, to the Ukrainian people what happened,” Alexander Lukashenko said. He added that today there are more and more anti-war forces that are pushing Ukraine to the negotiation process.
On October 15, in an interview with an NBC journalist, Alexander Lukashenko said that first you need to stop the armed conflict in Ukraine, and “then figure out who is right and who is wrong.” Western countries accuse Belarus of complicity in the Russian military operation. In October, the Russian and Belarusian presidents agreed to deploy a joint grouping in Belarus on the “western borders of the Union State.”
