Lukashenko calls proposals to ban transit to Kaliningrad tantamount to war declaration

ST PETERSBURG, 25 June (BelTA) – Proposals to prohibit transit to Kaliningrad are tantamount to the declaration of war in some ways. Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko made the statement as he met with President of Russia Vladimir Putin in St Petersburg on 25 June, BelTA has learned.

Aleksandr Lukashenko suggested discussing defense matters during the meeting. He said: “We are very stressed by the situation and the policy our neighbors pursue. Broadly speaking, you know it. I am talking about the leadership of Poland and the leadership of Lithuania. A policy in favor of confrontation. And you are getting your fair share, too. There have been mercenaries primarily from Poland in Ukraine recently. I don't understand why they want a confrontation. It is clear they are being pushed to it but the policy is disgusting. Aggressive behavior.”

Aleksandr Lukashenko noted Lithuania acts in a similar manner. “The flow of information regarding their intention to stop transit from Russia to Kaliningrad via Belarus, to isolate Kaliningrad is increasing. Listen, it is tantamount to the declaration of some war. Such actions are intolerable in modern conditions,” he said.
