Lukashenko: West’s appetites and activity will be only growing

MINSK, 20 February (BelTA) – The appetites and activity of the collective West will be only growing, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at a large meeting with the senior staff of the national security agencies in Minsk on 20 February, BelTA has learned. 

"In fact, we are in the epicenter of the protracted major military-political crisis. They use the methods of intimidation as old as the world. The forecasts are disappointing. The appetites and activity of the collective West will be only growing. Washington and its allies will continue to expand NATO. The situation is very favorable for them. To put it bluntly, without too much diplomacy, almost all European leaders have become U.S. subjects. There is no doubt about whose policy and whose interests dominate the European Union," the president said.

"The accession of Finland and the imminent accession Sweden to NATO is the next wave of expansion to the east. Bosnia and Herzegovina, Moldova, Georgia, and Serbia will be drawn into the alliance. All this will done according to Ukraine's scenario," Aleksandr Lukashenko added.

The president recalled the results of the “partnership politics" games with Ukrainian leaders. "They ended with the formation of a layer of agents of change for the subsequent change of the military-political focus to the pro-Western one. This ended with the war. Now they are playing the same game with Ukraine. The vague NATO membership prospect is successfully used by Western curators to motivate and push the Kiev authorities to continue the hostilities."

They want to drag Belarus into this war by hook or by crook, Aleksandr Lukashenko noted.
