MINSK, 21 March (BelTA) - Belarus has always helped Ukrainians and will continue to do so, political scientist Nikolai Shchekin, Candidate of Philosophical Sciences, Head of the Sociology of Public Administration Department at the Sociology Institute of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus, said on the air of the ONT TV channel, BelTA has learned.
Today, Belarusians gathered at the Ukrainian Embassy in Minsk to protest against Kiev's unfriendly actions. The other day the diplomatic mission of Belarus left Ukraine. At the Mogilev-Podolsky border checkpoint an incident happened with Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Belarus to Ukraine Igor Sokol. The Ukrainian military violated all the norms of international law.
"Belarus did everything it could. The country brought the two sides to the negotiating table. It helps refugees. It acted as a peacemaker and did not allow hostilities and, in general, war in Europe. The Ukrainian government, unfortunately, has not yet understood this. It is a great pity," Nikolai Shchekin said.
The analyst stressed that Belarus will continue to help Ukrainians. "Like it does now by providing help regarding the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. Thanks to us, by the way, a disaster did not happen there," he added.
