MINSK, 12 July (BelTA) – Modern fascists in NATO countries have not gone anywhere and have not died. Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko made the statement during the ceremony held in the Palace of Independence on 12 July to honor graduates of military schools and high-ranking officers, BelTA has learned.

Aleksandr Lukashenko said: “Modern fascists in NATO countries have not gone anywhere, they have not died. And they intend to carry out a strike via Ukraine and Belarus. This is why perhaps, maybe even partially intuitively I ordered the defense minister, the chief of the General Staff to work out an operation and fully cover the western border back in February. Although the threat seemed to be at the southern border. We didn't sleep there either but we covered the western border. And as you can see this strategy proves to be right several months later. We make the relevant conclusions from this conflict in Ukraine. Because there is a war over there today. God forbid if this war comes to Belarus. It is in this manner that we will have to protect our Fatherland if crazy people prevail over there.”
