MINSK, 26 August (BelTA) – Belarus' independence is unshakeable. Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko made the statement while talking to reporters at premises of Minsk Mechanical Plant, BelTA has learned.
German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has recently quoted President of Russia Vladimir Putin as allegedly denying Belarus' and Ukraine's independence. In response Aleksandr Lukashenko made it clear he does not pay attention to such things since he had heard too much fake news already.
Aleksandr Lukashenko said: “I know a different point of view of the Russian president. But what Scholz and Putin talked about is not the key. The key is what I am saying to you: sovereignty, independence of our state are unshakeable things. That's it!”
Aleksandr Lukashenko noted he even refuses to talk to those who think otherwise. “Regardless of what state they may represent: it has been like that with Americans, the French starting with [the former president of France Jacques] Chirac. And it will always be like that,” he stressed. “This is why pay no attention to babble of this kid. He will grow up and understand that he is chatterbox if Germans don't kick him out. That's it.”
