Lukashenko: Europe does not need war in Ukraine, afraid to go against United States

MOGILEV, 28 May (BelTA) -  European countries know they do not need the war in Ukraine but are afraid to go against the United States, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at the Belarus Media Forum in Mogilev on 28 May, BelTA has learned.

The views of the EU countries and the United States do not coincide on a number of issues, the head of state noted. For example, they differ regarding the situation in Ukraine. 
"The goals are different. Europe understands that this war is in their home. It should be stopped," Aleksandr Lukashenko stressed. 

However, the United States ignores the opinion of the European Union and their interest in resolving the conflict as soon as possible. "The Europeans say: ‘The Americans don't care. We have a war going on. We don't want it’. This is a direct statement, an open one," the Belarusian leader explained. 

According to the president, the Europeans, being against the continuation of the war, follow the lead of the United States and comply because they are afraid.
Aleksandr Lukashenko said he discussed this topic with his Russian counterpart, President Vladimir Putin. The reasons, in their opinion, are primarily economic in nature. "Complete dependence [in the economy] on the United States of America," the head of state explained. 

"They print money and give it to Ukraine. The world consumes it in the form of inflation," the president said.
