Lukashenka called the situation “dangerous” in the context of Russia’s war against Ukraine.
Self-proclaimed President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko said he would not allow Russia to be stabbed in the back
This is reported by the pro-government Belarusian news agency “Belta”.
He made the corresponding statement during a meeting with the Secretary of the Security Council of Belarus Alexander Volfovich.
“There is no need to reproach us that we are going to fight there in Ukraine and so on. We need to defend our homeland. And with the support of Russia, I confirm once again: because of Belarus, not a single blow in the back, sideways, sideways, from the flanks against Russian troops It shouldn’t be. And it won’t be. This is our obligation to our ally,” Lukashenka said.
At the same time, Lukashenka recalled that he had already instructed to work out in practice the actions of the military on the border with Ukraine, taking into account the “experience of counteraction”, as well as to cover the border.
Lukashenka called the situation “dangerous” in the conditions of Russia’s war against Ukraine, urged the authorities under his control not to be afraid of anything and to alert not only regular troops, but also the people’s militia, which is allegedly being formed.
“There is no need to be afraid of anything. We need to alert some military unit according to wartime standards, which means we need to. We need to mobilize it so that we can see the living people who are assigned to this unit, which means we need to mobilize it. “We need to raise the defense, so we need to. We need a people’s militia – to check there on the spot what kind of fighters we will have, and what kind of weapons they have, so we need to,” the Belarusian dictator said.
