MINSK, 17 August (BelTA) – At the rally in Minsk on 16 August Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko responded to the calls coming from a number of neighboring countries to hold a new presidential election in Belarus, BelTA has learned.

“Someone wants a new election. Just look out of the window! Tanks and jets are on takeoff 15 minutes away from our border. The sound of caterpillar tracks of NATO's tanks is heard near our border. There is a military buildup along the western border of our country. Lithuania, Latvia, Poland, unfortunately, our dear Ukraine and its leadership are demanding a new election,” the president said.

“No!” the participants of the rally chanted.

“If we toe their line, we will go into a spin and will never be able to regain control of our jet. We will die as a state, as a nation,” the Belarusian leader said.
