MINSK, 22 July (BelTA) – By creating a hotbed of tension around Belarus, European politicians are setting off World War III, Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko said in an interview with the Arab-speaking TV channel Sky News Arabia on 19 July, BelTA has learned.
“By creating here, in the center of Europe, a hotbed of monstrous tension, by launching a hybrid war against us and against Russia and China, the Europeans are creating not just a hotbed of tension in the very center of Europe. They are all taking us closer to World War III,” the Belarusian leader is convinced. According to him, this is already obvious not only for experts, but also for ordinary citizens.
The president emphasized that the escalation of tension is not happening at the will of the peoples of Lithuania, Poland, Ukraine, Germany and other countries. “This is politicians' madness. And I understand why this is happening. Because the European Union, Western Europe, first of all, are colonial states. The relationship of the United States of America with European countries is that of a metropole with subordinate colonies. This is it,” Aleksandr Lukashenko is convinced.
“Many events in the countries of the European Union, even in the most powerful of them, are orchestrated by the United States of America. The events run by the Americans in Europe are generally beyond the control of even the leaders of these countries,” the president continued. As a case in point, he recalled the scandal with wiretapping of the leaders of European states. “Who did it? Americans. Who did they use to do it? European states, European special services,” the Belarusian leader noted.
