MINSK, 3 December (BelTA) – The fifth package of sanctions will help Belarus make a number of necessary decisions. Member of the House of Representatives of the National Assembly, Chairman of the Liberal Democratic Party of Belarus Oleg Gaidukevich made the statement as he commented on the introduction of more restrictions against Belarus by the European Union, BelTA has learned.

The MP said: “I've looked at the new package of sanctions. It is harder and harder for European officials to keep even a resemblance of a face! You teach democracy and enforce sanctions against reporters, who have their own point of view. You disagree with them but they are entitled to an opinion. Are we supposed to agree with you on everything? Do we have to fall on the knees and cry out: ‘Oh, the great European way! Oh, European democracy! Oh, Brussels!'? Those, who teach democracy to us, have destroyed it.”

Oleg Gaidukevich also analyzed what the first four packages of European Union sanctions had achieved from the point of view of politics and geopolitics. “Belarus will never ever discuss the domestic political agenda with anyone else and it is right. We've at last banished the non-profit organizations and organizations, which are financed from the outside and work to benefit other countries instead of Belarus. We've stepped up integration with Russia across the board, which will make our statehood stronger. We now very actively protect our values and history,” the MP stressed. “What did Europe get? Europe only grew weaker over the years of confrontation with Russia and Belarus! Not a single goal has been achieved. Europe is getting weaker. What Lithuania and Poland are doing represents a threat to the security of Europe itself. The government will not be deposed according to the Western scenario either in Russia or Belarus. European values are becoming a lie. No post-Soviet republic has received anything from the West except for empty promises. The fifth package of sanctions will help us make a number of necessary decisions.”
