Lukashenko comments on pressure on Belarus

MINSK, 26 May (BelTA) – Belarus has always been the place where the interests of major players have clashed, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at a meeting in the Defense Ministry of Belarus to discuss military security issues on 26 May, BelTA has learned.

"A few years ago I said that our big problem is the geographical location. The Lord has put us in the center of the European continent. No matter what happens here, Belarus has always been the place where the interests of major players have clashed. This is what is going on, thank God without a military confrontation, without a hot war so far. God willing, this will not happen,” the head of state said.

Aleksandr Lukashenko said that the United States and its satellites continue the policy towards aggravating the relations with virtually the whole world. There is a heated confrontation with Russia. They have been building the military presence near Belarus, as an ally of Russia; large-scale exercises are being held. “As the Unites States' has planned, Europe and NATO have entered into a global confrontation with Russia. Belarus will face an unprecedented and prolonged economic, political and even military pressure,” the president noted. "Military pressure will be exerted through Poland, Lithuania, Latvia and NATO troops stationed there, and also through the escalation of hostilities in Ukraine."
