SOCHI, 23 May (BelTA) – Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko is worried about plans of NATO and Poland to dismember Ukraine and grab Western Ukraine, thus leaving the country the way it was prior to 1939. Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko made the relevant statement as he met with President of Russia Vladimir Putin in Sochi, BelTA has learned.
Aleksandr Lukashenko remarked that as far as security is concerned, they have something to talk about, particularly considering the concentration of NATO forces at western borders.
Aleksandr Lukashenko said: “There are some interesting things unexpectedly in Ukraine. You know it perfectly well. We and you should be worried about the steps they (politicians) are taking in order to dismember Ukraine. We are concerned by the fact they are ready – Poles, NATO countries – to come out, help grab Western Ukraine the way it was prior to 1939. We are concerned by it not only from the point of view of today's security. Their strategy applies to Western Belarus, too. This is why we are on alert. As I've said, Ukrainians will have to ask us to prevent the separation of this western part and other parts from Ukraine. It is my stance but you know it precisely. We have plenty of problems here, too but those are not ours anymore. Those are their problems that we will have to resolve. The incomprehensible behavior of Poland President Andrzej Duda in Kiev yesterday. By the way, he decides virtually nothing in Poland. He arranges these fakes.”
