MOSCOW, 11 April (BelTA) –  Russian President Vladimir Putin has laughed off statements about plans to attack the West as he met with Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko in the Kremlin, BelTA has learned. 

“They are screaming and shouting that Lukashenko and Putin will take over Europe tomorrow. We have never discussed plans to take over someone. We have enough of our own problems,” said the Belarusian head of state.

Vladimir Putin doubled down on that: “This is nonsense, the ruling circles are saying this just because they need to explain and justify their funding of the war in Ukraine. That’s all.”

“And their own failures,” added Aleksandr Lukashenko.

“First of all, their spending. This is the main reason why they are amplifying this topic about some kind of aggressive policy by Russia,” noted Vladimir Putin.
