MOSCOW, February 8. /TASS/. The leader of LDPR Vladimir Zhirinovsky has denied media reports attributed to him calls for the incorporation of Belarus into Russia.

“Journalists serve that I offer to include Belarus into Russia. I never had nothing like that,” said he with parliamentary correspondents.

Zhirinovsky explained that part of his keynote speech at the 30th Congress of the liberal democratic party discussed cooperation in the gas sphere between Belarus and Russia. “Lukashenko is asking for money more and more. Want to buy gas at domestic prices. I said at the 30th Congress of the liberal democratic party: if domestic prices become part of our state, and you will have all domestic prices and complete security,” – said the leader of the liberal democratic party.

He noted that such a statement was to show that “the internal prices should be for those who are part of the Russian state.” “No state in the world will not sell goods at domestic prices to foreigners,” said the leader of the LDPR.
