MINSK, 7 October (BelTA) – Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko told reporters in St Petersburg about his and Vladimir Putin's plan to provide Poland's leadership and Europeans with grain so that they will not steal it from Ukraine, BelTA informs.
The journalists asked what the Belarusian leader had brought to his Russian counterpart as a gift as Vladimir Putin marks his birthday anniversary on 7 October. Aleksandr Lukashenko answered that the gift is a hand-made BELARUS tractor, the same model as the Belarusian president uses.
Aleksandr Lukashenko also told the reporters about the attachments that go with this tractor. “There are a million of attachments, you know. Therefore, this is optional. But I will offer him one attachment - a seeder attachment. We will sow grain, maybe something else. It is multi-purpose. We will grow food, so that Duda, Morawiecki [Polish leadership], Europe will not starve and will not steal bread from Ukraine, but bring it to poor countries,” Aleksandr Lukashenko replied.
A reminder, earlier in September, prior to the visit to Uzbekistan for the Shanghai Cooperation Organization summit Aleksandr Lukashenko spent a morning worrying about European neighbors. The Telegram channel Pul Pervogo released a video showing Aleksandr Lukashenko chopping firewood and talking with Sergei Teterin.
“Good firewood,” Sergei Teterin said.
“Yes, indeed. We will not let Europe freeze to death! We will help out our brothers. They may return the favor some day,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.
“You think about everyone, about Europe, and the entire planet,” the businessman added.
“Well, I have to. We are the center of Europe after all. We boast about it,” the president responded.
“Fir wood is so sappy,” Sergei Teterin said.
“Indeed. Well, listen. Europe cannot be a chooser now: fir or birch. To stay warm is what matters. We should think about giving it to peasants, workers instead of rich people. And most importantly we don't want Duda and Morawiecki in Poland to freeze to death,” the head of state emphasized.
“Well, they are our neighbors,” the businessman doubled down on that.
“They may mend their ways,” the president added.
