MINSK, 26 November (BelTA) – The United States of America wants to unleash a war using Poland, the Baltic states, Ukraine and the migrant crisis on the border of Belarus, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he spoke at a joint meeting of the Constitutional Commission and the working group on finalizing the new Constitution draft on 25 November, BelTA informs.
“They seek to get closer to Moscow. And this ‘balcony' here obstructs them, they need to cut it off. And they will cut it,” the head of state said.
The migrant crisis on the border of Belarus with the European Union is used as a pretext. “These poor people are looking for a hole to slip into, and so they chose Belarus. But the Poles immediately took advantage of this situation in a bid to achieve their strategic goals. Here it is, the stage of rebellion, or color revolution,” the Belarusian leader said.
Aleksandr Lukashenko noted that earlier he had repeatedly warned about a possibility of some provocation from the West, and therefore he kept the situation under control. Now they are trying to use the refugee situation to their own advantage.
“They are trying to take advantage of these poor refugees, this process. Their purpose is already visible. They are already openly saying that they want NATO to get involved. What does it mean? Unleashing a war. They are provoking us. Europe does not need this, Europe does not want this, Europe does not want a war. Who needs this war? Americans. Today you see that the monopolar world is disappearing. They love fighting by proxy, and they want to send us into mayhem. And they will watch it unfolding from aside and supply weapons so that we kill each other and destroy our economy. They will come here again with dollars they are printing. They will say they want to help us, and they will start calling the shots following Trump's ‘America First' policy. That is their ultimate goal. They want to do it using Poles, Baltic states and Ukrainians,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.
The Belarusian head of state emphasized that Russian President Vladimir Putin and he see what is happening and assess these events in the same way. “It [Russia] is their ultimate target. And how to get closer to it if Ukraine and Belarus [are in their way]? You see what happened with Ukraine, but Belarus is holding its ground,” the head of state noted.
“The situation is not easy now. And it is quite a question how we will get through and adapt in order to preserve the state. This is my first question. But you are not bystanders either. When the time comes, I will instantly get you involved, and together we will have to come to grips with it,” the president said.
The Belarusian leader noted that Poland is using the migrant crisis at the border to divert the attention of its people from many domestic problems. For example, from the conflict with the European Union over the supremacy of EU courts. “According to the EU laws, the European Union has the right to check Poland's judicial appointments process down to the lowest level [Poland does not agree with this]. But you joined the European Union, you signed these norms, why are you challenging them now? If they do not comply with them, it's a scandal again. Therefore, it is necessary to divert the attention from this scandal with the EU. At the same time, the European Union's COVID recovery plan provides for earmarking $100 billion. And there is a catastrophe inside as well. So it is necessary to divert the attention from this situation. They are ready to unleash a war,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.
At the same time, as everyone knows, key decisions in Poland are made not by President Andrzej Duda or Mateusz Morawiecki [Prime Minister of Poland], but by the leader of the ruling Law and Justice party Jaroslaw Kaczynski, the Belarusian president noted. “It's not Duda and Morawiecki who call the shots there, but Mr. Kaczynski. Therefore, they want to retain power in every possible way. They are relying on Americans to help them. The USA is giving them money. This is how this curve appeared – Ukraine, Poland, the Baltic states. The target is the same [Moscow]. They cannot step over us yet. And we need to hold out,” the Belarusian leader emphasized.
