MINSK, 28 January (BelTA) – Actions of Belarusian opposition calling for protests and sanctions can be described as ‘wild democracy', Minister of Foreign Affairs Vladimir Makei told reporters at the session of the CIS Council of Permanent Plenipotentiaries in statutory and other bodies of the Commonwealth of Independent States on 28 January, BelTA has learned.
Vladimir Makei noted that not everything is perfect in Belarus and much needs to be improved. However, this should be done “not under orders of external supervisors, not under pressure from the street, not through a revolution that brings only bloodshed and tears, but within the framework of the law,” he stressed.
“Maybe it will take more time and effort. Everything that has been achieved in independent Belarus can be destroyed overnight. Who will build a new state on the ruins of the old one and how will this be done? Unfortunately, I have not heard the answer to this question from the opponents of the authorities yet. Sanctions, remove, destroy, overthrow and the like - I call it ‘wild democracy'. I know what many people living abroad are saying and suggesting in relation to Belarus and Belarusian people. Therefore, I am convinced that if such people come to power, it will be a fascist democracy,” the minister said.
