MINSK, 28 March (BelTA) – Belarus is one of the centers of humanitarian aid today. The Russian reporter, political analyst Mikhail Markelov made the statement on the air of the TV channel Belarus One, BelTA has learned.
Mikhail Markelov remarked that unlike various bodies trying to play up the humanitarian problem in Ukraine, the grateful Belarusian nation feels someone else's pain as its own. The actions meant to help people fleeing from the war indicate that today Belarus is one of the centers of humanitarian aid. “Humanitarian aid for those, who are suffering from the war today. Undoubtedly, Russia helps as well. But without this zeal, without the ability to help I think the situation in Ukraine would be much more catastrophic than it is today,” he said.
The political analyst underlined that Belarus is not indifferent to fates of Ukrainians.
Mikhail Markelov stated: “Essentially, after many wars in various territories (the Middle East as well as Africa), in which NATO took an active part, all these bodies, which now wail about a humanitarian catastrophe, about a crisis, should be reminded what happened as a result of their actions and how they ‘helped' the people, who were affected as a result of these dreadful wars. What Lukashenko is doing today deserves colossal respect. Because today we see that Belarus is not indifferent to people's fates.”
