Lukashenko tells AP who can stop hostilities in Ukraine within a week

MINSK, 5 May (BelTA) – In an interview with the Associated Press Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko opined on who can stop the hostilities in Ukraine within a week, BelTA has learned.

The head of state gave his take on whether the Ukrainian leadership is willing to stop the hostilities through diplomatic means: “Maybe the leadership of Ukraine wants to do it, but it cannot. It cannot do it for one reason: because today it is not Zelensky who runs Ukraine (he should not take offense, this is my point of view). It is you [Western countries] who are calling the shots there,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.

“If Joe Biden says: “Guys, everyone, you have done enough fighting, you should stop it now, nobody needs this war, it is in no one's interest”, then everything will stop within a week.”
