Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council Oleksiy Danilov said that Ukraine was aware of the threats to the agreements between Russian President Vladimir Putin and self-proclaimed “President” of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko, but that “everything is under control.”
According to an UNIAN correspondent, he stated this on the air of the program “Right to Power” on the TV channel “1 + 1”.
Danilov noted that the “fraternization” of Belarus and Russia has been going on for more than a year, and Lukashenko “is now beginning a new period of unification with Russia.”
“We are aware of all the challenges that exist. We understand that Putin is doing a very simple thing right now – he wants to take over Belarus … but it is clear that this is not about any fraternal relations,” he said.
The Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council stressed that this is not a new challenge for Ukraine.
“We are well aware of the threats we face from Belarus and Russia. We are dealing with this issue not only today, but from the first day as soon as the president appointed me to office,” Danilov explained.
He stressed that “everything is under control”.
As UNIAN reported, on September 9, Putin and Lukashenko met in Moscow and signed 28 programs on the so-called “union state”.
In particular, during the meeting they agreed that on December 1, 2023 an agreement on the unification of the gas market of Russia and Belarus will be signed.
In addition, the creation of a single market for oil and petroleum products, as well as an agreement on a single market for electricity.
Putin and Lukashenko also agreed on new financial support for Minsk, which from September to the end of 2022 will amount to about $ 630 million.
At the same time, it is planned to create a common payment area within the “union state”, as well as to lift Russia’s current restrictions on air services with Belarus.
