MINSK, 5 May (BelTA) – It is now important to stop armed hostilities in Ukraine instead of deciding who is right and who is to blame for the current situation. Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko made the statement in an interview with Associated Press, BelTA has learned.
Speaking about atrocities committed by both sides of the conflict, Aleksandr Lukashenko noted he blames neither Ukrainians nor Russians: “Because a war is going on. When your buddy, sergeant, private is killed, either an American or someone else, you know how the survivors will react.”
The president pointed out he is well informed about events in Ukraine and knows about them not only from his communication with President of Russia Vladimir Putin: “I sometimes see more because the war is in progress right over my fence.” In particular, Aleksandr Lukashenko mentioned information about the situation in the Ukrainian regions that border on Poland, Hungary, and Slovakia.
Aleksandr Lukashenko is convinced that the key thing now is to stop armed hostilities in order to stop people getting killed on both sides. “Who is right and who is wrong doesn't matter. The war has to stop. We can sort out right from wrong later on,” he stressed. “And it is not even in Zelenskyy's hands now. It is in hands of primarily Washington and London. Europe doesn't need this war,” he stressed.
