Lukashenko: Ukraine’s days are numbered if the West helps Ukraine the way it is doing now

The situation in Ukraine is developing badly, while Russia has set a course for a peaceful settlement of the conflict – as stated by the President of Belarus, Aleksandr Lukashenko, during his today’s talk with the media at Minsk’s polling station


Aleksandr Lukashenko was asked on whether there is a possibility that Ukraine will agree to negotiations this year. According to the Head of State, there are now sufficient grounds for peaceful negotiations to resolve the conflict in Ukraine, while events in Ukraine itself are currently developing poorly.

“It is not about Avdeevka. Everything would have been resolved in Avdeevka a long time ago if Russians had fought like during the Great Patriotic War. I know for sure how carefully the Russian military and President Putin have to work. I often discuss this issue with him. I feel sorry for people,” the Belarusian leader said.

At the same time, the NATO allies admit that very large reserves have been created by the Russian side at the contact line, at firing grounds. The President noted, “I see that Russians have taken a very serious course towards a peaceful settlement of this conflict, especially now. There is no wish to send people into hell.”

At the same time, the Western side is convinced that it is much better than Russia in terms of economy and power, but the Belarusian leader believes that the strength of forces relies on the people’s determination and material reserves, which Russia has more. The United States and Europe have just printed Euros and Dollars that will simply collapse.

Moreover, as noted by Aleksandr Lukashenko, the military-industrial complex is seriously developing in Russia at present. “NATO members need to think about what will happen next. Where will this ‘aggressor’ Putin put these weapons? Use your brains to think about it. Stop now! There is an opportunity to negotiate… Ukraine’s days are numbered if the West helps Ukraine the way it is doing now. Volodya Zelenskyy should understand this. The Ukrainian military has understood this,” Aleksandr Lukashenko added.

The Belarusian leader stressed, “If Ukrainians do not negotiate with Russia now, they will completely lose Ukraine. As soon as Ukrainian soldiers run away or simply stop fighting, Poles will take over the western part of Ukraine (we do not agree to that), and Russia will cut off the southern part up to Transnistria. What will remain, will it be Kiev alone? Therefore, it is necessary to negotiate today in order to save the country. There are a lot of reasons for negotiations, and it is necessary to move in this direction.”
