Lukashenko: Belarus-Russia cooperation should encourage other countries to follow suit

MINSK, 12 May (BelTA) – Belarus-Russia cooperation outcomes should be useful and attractive to other countries, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he met with Khabarovsk Territory Governor Mikhail Degtyaryov, BelTA has learned.

“Despite the long distance between Belarus and Khabarovsk Territory, I want my ideology to be understood correctly. I believe that our common Fatherland is from Brest to Vladivostok. And, despite the emergence of sovereign, independent states in this common space, we, as reasonable people, should drop all sorts of prejudices and should build normal interaction that would be no worse than in the Soviet Union,” the Belarusian leader said.

Aleksandr Lukashenko noted that it is necessary to act in such a way as not to cause problems to anyone in Russia, or in Belarus, or in other countries. “Our experience should be interesting and attractive to other republics. I have been following this principle since the mid-1990s after the collapse of the Soviet Union. I have not compromised or deviated from this ideology. It is based on the fact that the Eastern Slavic civilization is one of the pillars and foundations of the world civilization in general. Destroying it would mean destroying at least half of the planet. We must stick to this, we must hold out. This is very relevant today,” the president said.
