Lukashenko urges to prevent bloodshed in Ukraine

MINSK, 24 February (BelTA) – There is a need to look for ways to prevent bloodshed and massacre in Ukraine, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at an operational meeting with the military in Minsk on 24 February, BelTA has learned.

"The conflict has begun. What's next? They did not hear my message to them during my address to the parliament. I want them [in Ukraine] to hear me now. Ways must be found to prevent bloodshed and massacre. God forbid, a ground operation starts... Missiles are being fired at oil depots, military infrastructure, ammunition and warehouses. The entire infrastructure is reported to have already been destroyed. It was known to everyone, including Russia. In a ground operation, a single shot, a single death will start a full-scale war. This must be prevented,” stressed Aleksandr Lukashenko.

The president emphasized China's balanced position on the situation in Ukraine: “The Chinese are wise people, and they say that the conflict can still be prevented. Therefore, it is necessary to look for ways to prevent bloodshed. To prevent this and stop the escalation, they need to sit down at the negotiating table.
