GRODNO, 24 August (BelTA) – Opponents of the Belarusian state are rocking the boat in the country, testing scenarios for further pressure on Russia, President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at a rally in Grodno on 22 August, BelTA has learned.
“Many in Russia comment on the developments in Belarus (I often see it in the media)... This is not about Belarus. This is about Russia, your western frontier. Putin and I agreed: Belarus is first, Russia is next in line. We should frustrate their plans to use Belarus as a springboard. President Putin and I share this opinion,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.
