Lukashenko called NATO in Ukraine less of a threat than “frostbitten national minorities with a gun”
Moscow. 14 Dec. INTERFAX.RU President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko said about the concerns regarding the placement of NATO forces in Ukraine.
“The further — the worse (the situation in the zone of armed conflict in the East of Ukraine — if). Will tell my position: everyone is afraid that there will be NATO,” — said Lukashenko at a press conference for Russian media on Friday in Minsk.
“I recently Vladimir Vladimirovich (Putin) said that we with you soon Lord, we will ask that there was NATO and not the frostbite national minorities with a gun. That’s what we can bring (the situation — if)”, — the President added.
At the same time Lukashenka noted that such “national minorities” may receive the missiles. “At this moment the US withdraws from the Treaty on the limitation of missiles short and medium range. Now imagine that I have a near Gomel will stand missiles with nuclear warheads, and you have near Rostov. We wanted this? So until later, have a head in hands to take and to do something to stop it”, — Lukashenka said.
The President of Belarus has once again stated that without US involvement the conflict in Ukraine is resolved. “But we three (Belarus, Russia, Ukraine — if), can solve. We need to sit down and think, to abandon the attack, where something of the brackets display where something is to forgive. Let’s take steps in this direction,” he said.
