Lukashenko: ‘West will continue to destabilize post-Soviet countries in order to weaken Russia'

MINSK, 28 January (BelTA) – The West will continue to destabilize the situation in the post-Soviet countries with an aim to weaken Russia, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he delivered the Address to the Belarusian people and the National Assembly in Minsk on 28 January, BelTA has learned.

"The situation in Kazakhstan has shown that not only the Slavic but also the Central Asian brotherhood has become a target. It is obvious that in order to weaken Russia the West will persist with its tactics to destabilize the situation in the post-Soviet countries. Should we react and build up our defensive capabilities given this whole situation? The answer is obvious. If you want peace, alas, prepare for war...", Aleksandr Lukashenko said.

Belarusians do not want war, the head of state noted. "Peace is the absolute value for Belarusians, the most important one. We all need to make tremendous efforts to preserve it," the president emphasized.
