MINSK, 9 May (BelTA) - Belarusians are peaceful people, but the West should not even try to speak with us from a position of force, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at a ceremony on the occasion of the 77th anniversary of Great Victory at the Victory Monument in Minsk on 9 May, BelTA has learned.
Aleksandr Lukashenko noted that no one abroad cares that the Belarusian army is not taking part in the military operation. They ignore the efforts of Belarus to ensure for the speedy cessation of hostilities in Ukraine.
"We are peaceful people, but do not even try to speak with us from a position of force," the president warned. "Your dreams of driving the Slavs into a new slavery, which you call globalism, are unrealistic."
