Speaking at the “Minsk Dialog” forum, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said that the West has left Ukraine to deal with the conflict in the Donbas on its own, Interfax-Ukraine reports.
“We have left Zelensky, who has been laden with this terrible burden, not his problems, alone with these problems,” Lukashenko remarked.
According to the Belarusian president, current events in Kyiv show that “certain forces are using this process indiscriminately to press down the new government and new president… And Europe is keeping silent. You know who I’m talking about,” Lukashenko emphasized.
“Both from the East and from the West, only stones are being thrown at this young person. Yes, you will wake up eventually. The war is not only in Ukraine, the war is in our home, and we have to deal with this problem,” the Belarusian leader warned.
“If the Normandy Four is worth something, it should have been convened and decided something long ago,” Lukashenko remarked.
On October 4, while speaking at the Forum of Regions in Zhytomyr, Lukashenko said that other countries are preventing Belarus from having close relations with Ukraine. “No one, no matter what the politicians around us have said, will ever allow us to become really good friends. Because, unfortunately, the world works according to the ‘divide and conquer’ principle,” he observed.
