SOCHI, 23 May (BelTA) – Actions of Poland President Andrzej Duda, who visited the Ukrainian capital the day before and made a speech in the Ukrainian parliament, are incomprehensible. Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko made the relevant statement as he met with President of Russia Vladimir Putin in Sochi, BelTA has learned.
Speaking about security, including matters relating to the conflict in Ukraine, Aleksandr Lukashenko mentioned the Poland president's visit to Kiev. He said: “The incomprehensible behavior of Poland President Andrzej Duda in Kiev yesterday. By the way, he decides virtually nothing in Poland. He arranges these fakes.”
Aleksandr Lukashenko was also worried about plans of NATO and Poland to grab Western Ukraine, thus dismembering the country and leaving it the way it was prior to 1939. The head of state said: “We and you should be worried about the steps they (politicians) are already taking in order to dismember Ukraine. We are concerned by the fact they are ready – Poles, NATO countries – to come out, help grab Western Ukraine the way it was prior to 1939. We are concerned by it not only from the point of view of today's security. Their strategy applies to Western Belarus, too. This is why we are on alert. As I've said, Ukrainians will have to ask us to prevent the separation of this western part and other parts from Ukraine.”
“It is my stance but you know it precisely. We have plenty of problems here, too but those are not ours anymore. Those are their problems that we will have to resolve,” the Belarusian leader added.
