Lukashenko blames the West for the situation with migrants – Rossiyskaya Gazeta

It was the policy of the West that led to the current situation with migrants on the Belarusian-Polish border, said President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko in an interview with the editor-in-chief of the Russian magazine National Defense Igor Korotchenko.

“And then they imposed sanctions against me, against Belarusians, went to a hybrid war against Belarus. Take the media, the economy, politics, they got to the military, they got to safety,” he is quoted as saying RIA Novosti President of Belarus.

According to the Belarusian leader, the West is mistaken if it thinks that in this situation Belarus will, among other things, protect it from migrants. “You arranged it – you will get it,” Lukashenka said.

The President of the Republic of Belarus assured that not a single plane of the national Belarusian air carrier Belavia brought migrants from the Middle East to Belarus.

“Belavia’s planes were even banned from flying over the territory of Europe! Well, well, we fly to Russia, we fly to China, to the same East and so on, although not a single Belavia plane brought migrants here, they are on their planes , they fly on Boeings, explained the President of Belarus.

The migration crisis on the borders of Belarus with Poland, Lithuania and Latvia, where migrants have rushed since the beginning of the year, sharply escalated on November 8. Several thousand people came from the Belarusian side to the Polish border and do not leave the border zone. Some tried to enter the territory of Poland.

EU countries accuse Minsk of escalating the crisis and call for the imposition of sanctions. President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko said that it is the Western states that are to blame for this situation, because of whose actions people are fleeing the war.
