Lukashenko: Belarus will never be a source of war

MINSK, 28 January (BelTA) – Belarus will never be a source of war, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he delivered the Address to the Belarusian people and the National Assembly in Minsk on 28 January, BelTA has learned.

"You do not have to worry about your sons. I have three. You know them. They will never hide behind other people's backs. If need be, they will go to war," Aleksandr Lukashenko said. “But I have never said that I will send troops to foreign land against some people. You mentioned Ukraine. God forbid I fight against this people. My great-grandfathers probably hail from there. I am a peaceful person and I do not give such orders. I have cited you two cases when Belarus may become involved in a war. I think they will never happen."

The president admitted that it was not easy for him to send peacekeepers to Kazakhstan. "Those were about 250 people. These were my children, not just yours. I prayed to God that they would all come back safe. And so it happened. Although the scumbags wanted at least one dead, to create some political hype on this,” the president noted. “We have the army to defend ourselves. But if they come to kill us, then we will fight tooth and nail, both on our land and elsewhere. But we will never be a source of war," the Belarusian leader stressed.
