LOGOISK DISTRICT, 23 September (BelTA) – Belarus will go to war only when it has to defend itself, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko told journalists on 23 September, BelTA has learned.
The head of state once again assured that there are no plans to declare mobilization in Belarus or to join the war. “We will fight only when we have to defend our home, our land,” he stressed.
Earlier, the head of state told journalists that opponents are playing up the mobilization theme and saying that Belarus might declare mobilization modeled on the draft in Russia. “There will be no mobilization. We are not going to mobilize people. This is a lie,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.
At the same time, the president emphasized that Belarus would definitely respond to possible threats and attempts to commit acts of terrorism. To this end, various exercises are conducted on a regular basis, including with the participation of the people's militia, so that people know what they should do and get the necessary military skills.
