Lukashenko explains why they want to drag Belarus into war 

 MINSK, 20 February (BelTA) – They want to drag Belarus into the war by any means, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at a large meeting with the senior staff of the national security agencies in Minsk on 20 February, BelTA has learned. 

"They want to drag us into this war by hook or by crook. We have some classified information on our hands. We know exactly what the chief of the General Staff of a major NATO member state thinks about this: ‘We failed to drag Belarus in the conflict. Minsk's active participation in the war would have undermined the regime in Belarus and hurt A. Lukashenko. This opportunity is still open," the president said.

"The Poles are happy: ‘The war in Ukraine is an opportunity to change the regime in Belarus.' A chance for our self-exiled opposition. This is a quote," the Belarusian leader said.

According to him, behind these word games there is a desire to finally satisfy their long-standing territorial ambitions: "I have already spoken about this, but I will repeat it again. Europe believes that (literally) "the war will end in territorial changes. Poland has legal rights to a part of modern Belarus. In turn the democratic Belarus will receive a part of the territory of the defeated Russia as compensation." That's the whole strategy. Behind-closed-doors meeting of the "hawks". This is their strategy - to inflict an ultimate defeat on Belarus and Russia, and to grab the territories and so on. You understand that this will lead to a bloodbath on these lands.”

“Thus, the prerequisites for a new redivision of the European continent are being shaped. Our self-exiled opposition dreams of joining this process. Territorial redistribution was part of the talks held with our self-exiled opposition. [Representatives of the West] held talks with them,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.
