He recalled that several years ago both countries signed the Treaty on establishing the Union state, which planned to develop relations. The parties to the agreement were to adopt a General Constitution of the organization, but Russia “has refused at the time to go this way,” — said Lukashenko. Therefore today it is necessary “to sit down and watch” that the allies can decide on this contract, “we can without any pressure to go.”
The head of Belarus also noted that relations between countries should be developed only on the basis of equality, “because it is the fundamental principles of any Union.” “Not because Lukashenko wants to, as it is presented in Russia”, — said the President. In addition, such decisions need to be confirmed by the peoples of the States, so on their unification “of the question”.
Lukashenko said that Putin takes the same view: Russia will not be able to take this step, given the possible consequences.
Therefore, it is necessary to calm down and stop talking, someone someone tipped or tips. Here no one is applying.Alexander Lucasentertainment Belarus
