Paccording to the Belarusian president, the Americans want to “create a mess in Belarus” with the hands of Poles, Balts and Ukraine. According to him, Russian President Vladimir Putin sees the same situation
President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko believes that the United States is using the migration crisis on the border with the EU to start a war. According to the BelTA news agency, he stated this at a joint meeting of the Constitutional Commission and the working group on finalizing the draft Constitution.
“They need to get closer to Moscow. And then here’s the “balcony” left again, hinders them, it is necessary to cut it off. And they will cut», — he said.
Lukashenko called what is happening on the border a stage of rebellion or a “color revolution”. In his opinion, NATO’s involvement in the settlement of the refugee situation is nothing more than provoking war. “Europe does not want war. Who needs this war? The Belarusian president told the Americans.
In his opinion, the United States wants to start a war “with the hands of Poles, Balts and Ukrainians”. “It’s necessary to create a mess somewhere here again. And they will watch on the sidelines and supply weapons so that we kill each other and the economy will go down. They will come here again with the dollar they are printing now to help us,” Lukashenko said.
According to him, Russian President Vladimir Putin is also looking at these events. “It’s aimed against them first of all. And how to get there if Ukraine and Belarus? With Ukraine, you see what has happened, and Belarus is resisting,” he explained.
The migration crisis on the Belarusian-Polish border has been going on for several months: refugees are trying to reach the largest and economically developed EU countries through Poland. The situation in the border areas worsened on November 8, when a large convoy of migrants arrived at the border of Belarus with Poland. On the same day, Warsaw closed the border crossing «Smithy—«Bruzgi», near which migrants gathered.
On November 16, migrants threw stones at Polish security forces. After that, the Polish authorities issued an ultimatum to Minsk and threatened to restrict rail traffic if the situation did not improve. On November 19, the Border Committee of Belarus notified Poland that there were no more migrants on the border of the two countries, but Warsaw still restricted rail traffic.
