MINSK, 15 November (BelTA) – Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko denied the accusations against Belarus about blocking access to humanitarian aid for refugees at the border as he spoke at a meeting with the working group to finalize the draft Constitution, BelTA has learned.
"The President Administration should respond more effectively to the events that are taking place in Belarus, so that our people understand what is happening. They (especially the Poles) have already accused us that we block access to the humanitarian aid and do not provide it to refugees rapped on the state border," Aleksandr Lukashenko said.
According to the president, such accusations against Belarus are beyond weird. Earlier the head of state instructed to streamline and organize the delivery and distribution of humanitarian aid to refugees at the border. “I have been dealing with this issue the whole weekend. All the instructions I gave have been fulfilled. We feed children and pregnant women. We deliver firewood and everything they need,” he said.
