Tight friendship between Russia and Belarus has become an answer to Western sanctions. Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Russia to Belarus Boris Gryzlov made the statement during a business trip to Mogilev Oblast, BelTA has learned.

The ambassador met with Chairman of the Mogilev Oblast Executive Committee Anatoly Isachenko. Boris Gryzlov mentioned the inadmissibility of spreading fake news. “Fake news concerning the situation in Russia, which are being spread all over the world, need to be dismantled,” he stressed. “The situation is quite complicated now. The special military operation in Ukraine is primarily designed to prevent the genocide of the population of Donbass. Secondly, it is designed to demilitarize and denazify the country as a whole. We understand that the collective West had been preparing to destroy Russia. It is not a Ukrainian crisis. It is a crisis of two mentalities – ours and the West's.”

The ambassador noted that NATO countries led by the USA are pumping Ukraine full of powerful weapons. Space reconnaissance solutions are being used. “This is why today's situation is truly a confrontation of two worlds and we will win. There is no doubt about that,” he stressed.

Boris Gryzlov thanked the Belarusian nation for understanding the current situation. “Today both Russia and Belarus are experiencing the pressure of sanctions and the pressure is indeed getting stronger. Our tight friendship and our relations, consolidation of all the capabilities represent an answer to Western sanctions. Europe is shooting itself in the foot. We understand that a crisis in Europe is unavoidable and it has already started. If Western countries continue pursuing the policy of sanctions, they are actually destroying their economy.”
