MP: the West cannot forgive Belarus for its sovereignty

The sanctions policy against Belarus is due to the West’s inability to forgive the republic for its sovereignty – as stated by Oleg Gaidukevich, a deputy of the House of Representatives of the National Assembly, in his talk with the Belarus 1 TV channel

“Belarus’ Head of State and the President of Russia discussed [at the Supreme State Council of the Union State in St. Petersburg] the situation in the world – in Europe and in the Middle East. I would like to remind that we are in the centre of geopolitics, and all the hatred of the West, sanctions, struggle, and millions of Dollars are due to geopolitics. Even during the recent visit, there were attempts to cause a quarrel between the presidents of Russia and Belarus. This happens every time they meet, but nothing works out. I even laughed at a fake that Putin invited Lukashenko to the hockey arena in order to make fun of him. You are idiots. Look at how the sportsmen greeted the President of Belarus, what a level of respect they demonstrated! The explanation of why all this is being done is simple: the West cannot forgive Belarus for its sovereignty and alliance with Russia – despite the fact that the choice of this union was a sovereign decision of Belarus. They want us to give them our sovereignty, and the sanctions policy follows as a result,” Mr. Gaidukevich said.
