MINSK, 5 May (BelTA) – The war in Ukraine could be ended within one week or even faster if the United States of America and the UK were interested in it. Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko made the statement in an interview with Associated Press, BelTA has learned.
Aleksandr Lukashenko said: “I see that Ukraine did not intend to resolve problems step by step, which resulted in a war. This is why if you talk about some atrocities in Ukraine, you should primarily talk to Poles about it, for instance, to the United States of America, the UK. If you, the USA and the UK, are interested in ending the war in Ukraine, it can be done within one week. Even faster. But you are not interested in it.”
The president reminded that agreements on resolving the crisis in Ukraine were reached in Minsk in 2014. But they were realized neither by the then president of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko nor by the current president Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
“If back then Ukraine had implemented the agreement, it could exist within Soviet borders today. There would be no war. The third election could have been held in Donbass already. Pardon me for sincerity, Ukrainians could have held it the way they want. It is necessary to resolve big problems step by step, calmly,” the head of state noted.
