Lukashenko: West uses migrants to hold back the Belarusian army in case of conflict with Russia

MINSK, 29 November (BelTA) – The West uses migrants as a tool to hold back the Belarusian army in case of a conflict with Russia, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at a meeting on military security in the strategic control center of the Defense Ministry on 29 November.

“They are, probably, concerned that the inflow of migrants has decreased because they are using these people (we already see it) to solve their internal problems and to put pressure on us. They understand very well that if Ukraine tries to initiate a conflict with Russia, Belarus will not stand aside. Therefore, it is necessary to hold back the Belarusian army, to put pressure on them in the western borders (Latvia, Lithuania, Poland) and in the south – by the strengthening of the Ukrainian border,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.

The president is convinced that in the near future his words will be confirmed by the actions of the western side.

According to the head of state, he previously instructed the defense minister and the chairman of the State Border Committee not to rise to provocations, not to provoke conflicts and confrontation. At the same time, the defense minister and the head of the General Staff of the Armed Forces were instructed to prepare a plan of response to possible aggression and illegal actions against Belarus.
