Lukashenko describes nature of current confrontation between West and East

MINSK, 20 February (BelTA) – The current phase of the civilizational confrontation between West and East has its features, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said at a large meeting with the senior staff of the national security agencies in Minsk on 20 February, BelTA has learned.

“The beneficiaries of the war have no interest in stopping the slaughter inside a nation alien to them. The stakes are too high, and the profits are fabulous. The price of one NATO 155-millimeter artillery shell, for example, has increased 4 times since the beginning of the war in Ukraine - from €2,000 to €8,000. No comment, as they say. I would like to characterize the current phase of the civilizational confrontation between East and West as follows: the masks have been completely dropped,” the head of state said.

According to Aleksandr Lukashenko, if Washington used to at least come up with a valid pretext to satisfy its geopolitical ambitions (everyone remembers the test tube), used soft and smart force, inspired color revolutions, hybrid and proxy wars, today it is moving to open aggression and physical destruction of the undesirable without any information preludes.

“Now we are given the thesis that the multipolar world is a world of uncontrolled growth of agents of chaos, that we need one global policeman (this is how the mainstream media in the West write, shaping public opinion). This is a lie. The so-called uncontrolled growth was instigated and is still trying to be controlled by Washington. This is their agony,” the president said.
Aleksandr Lukashenko is convinced that only a multipolar world is able to establish balance and ensure security on all continents. “The transition to it is very stressful and dramatic. It cannot be otherwise,” the president said.
