According to the head of state, about 1,000 migrants were evacuated from Belarus to their home country. “I would like you to know that we are not going to detain you, push you onto planes and send you back home if you do not want to do that,” the president stressed.
“If you want to go west, we won't choke, grab and beat you. It is your will. If you go through, go ahead. That's simple. I know that not everyone will like what I say, especially those abroad, but it's the truth, they should know the truth,” said Aleksandr Lukashenko.
