MINSK, 28 March (BelTA) – They are trying to drag Belarus into the military conflict with the help of provocations, political expert Vadim Yelfimov told the On point online project on BelTA's YouTube channel on 26 March, BelTA has learned.

"Ukraine has churned out many threats towards Belarus, launched Tochka-U missiles. We are not at war with anyone. Nevertheless, they are trying to drag us into the bloodbath where the West's interests are defended," Vadim Yelfimov said.

Despite the unfriendly steps on the part of the Ukrainian leadership, the Belarusian president has offered to host the Belarus-Russia negotiations. "He is trying to preserve the Minsk venue, which previously gave a chance to preserve the Ukrainian nation and the country's territorial integrity. He said before that he didn't want to be a mediator. Aleksandr Lukashenko simply provided an opportunity for Ukraine to come to an agreement with Russia. For the eight years they were not able to agree on anything. Today, the question of the territorial integrity of Ukraine is no longer on the agenda," Vadim Yelfimov said.

According to him, the Ukrainian military has chosen the tactic of using civilians as human shields. For this reason, Ukraine is reluctant to let people through Russian humanitarian corridors. “They have a lot of Western weapons, they have been trained by the West, but for some reason they refuse to fight Russia in the open combat. Instead, they have been deploying weapons in cities, near infrastructure facilities," Vadim Yelfimov said.
