MINSK, 30 July (BelTA) – Political support for the “fugitives” has produced nothing and is limited to their unending road tours along the lines of “Biden will help us”. Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko made the statement as he met with government officials on 30 July to discuss urgent issues of the public and political situation, BelTA has learned.
Aleksandr Lukashenko said: “As we can see, political support for the ‘fugitives' has produced nothing and is limited to their unending road tours along the lines of ‘Biden will help us'. They say he's offered them some cookies. Listen, it is not my first year in the president's office. I know very well the previous two American presidents, even three. We haven't had any official relations with them but I know them very well. I know how such events are organized. A meeting needs to be organized. A photo needs to be taken. And a small cookie needs to be given. If there are truly problems with cookies over there, we should send them several boxes.”
Among other things Aleksandr Lukashenko mentioned hidden motives of the American president: “Biden took the bait when he heard that a propaganda and agitation base will be established over there for the sake of launching psychological attacks against Belarus and Russia. He is now totally focused on Russia. You've seen it: gasoline pump, oil, nuclear weapons [Joe Biden said the other day that Russia relies purely on nuclear weapons and oil resources]. He is worried. He is about to go crazy and needs to do something. It means he is short-sighted. The head of the world's leading country cannot behave like that.”
“This is why Biden will certainly help. But for two minutes as long as he sees the person. Nobody will do it afterwards. Because big politics is made in silent offices,” Aleksandr Lukashenko added.
