LOGOISK DISTRICT, 23 September (BelTA) – The Polish nation will call to account their government for its hair-brained and short-sighted policy. Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko made the statement while talking to reporters in the WW2 memorial complex Khatyn on 23 September, BelTA has learned.
Speaking about the situation in the neighboring country, Aleksandr Lukashenko remarked that Poland has not been largely affected by the sanctions-fuelled standoff of the European Union against Russia and Belarus. Moreover, the United States of America is helping Poland. However, the Polish government sometimes aggravates relations with some countries with its own actions. Demanding reparations from Germany is the latest example. “They are free to demand them. Maybe they are indeed owed reparations. But I wonder then what damage they did to us before 1939,” he noted. “How are they going to compensate for that? You have to be smart. Before demanding a compensation from Germans you have to consider that you owe something to someone, too. It is an example of a hair-brained and short-sighted policy.”
According to Aleksandr Lukashenko, these actions have been prompted by forthcoming elections in Poland. “They will drink this cup all the way like we did in 2020 with their nudging. We will leave them alone but their people will call them to account. This is why the policy will change. Poland's current government's policy is alien to the Polish people,” the president is convinced. “The people will reject this policy. But if Poles go totally crazy and start a little war somewhere, it will be the end of the country. But I don't think it will come to that because the Polish nation will not allow it.”
