MINSK, 30 December (BelTA) – Belarus is not only threatened with new economic sanctions. A true information war has been launched against us, we are facing incessant political provocations, Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he met with the special police force of the Minsk City Police Department on 30 December, BelTA has learned.
“The world is rapidly changing and becoming less and less safe for common people. Several countries have even been pushed into civil wars and ethnic conflicts. We have not just heard about this, we have experienced this firsthand. There is a continuous buildup of military presence close to our western and northern borders. Poland and the Baltic states have become a training ground for regular drills and exercises of NATO troops. We are not just threatened with new economic sanctions. They have launched a true information war against us, attack us with incessant political provocations,” the head of state said.
He noted that some time passed, the dust settled, and people saw with their own eyes who were these people who had been so eager to seize the power. “Street riots were the doing of foreign puppeteers and their sidekicks-collaborators who failed to demonstrate their political significance otherwise. We have already seen the likes of them in German documentary footage, marching excitedly with white-red-white flags and Fuhrer's portraits,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.
The president pointed out that despite massive financial injections, direct participation of foreign figures in the organization of protests and training of radicals, the attempt to revive those things in the present was a lost cause because of one simple reason. “Glorification of Nazism is impossible in the country that lost every third resident [during the war],” he stressed.
