Lukashenko: No Ukrainian scenario in Belarus

LIDA DISTRICT, 24 March (BelTA) – A Ukrainian-type situation will not happen in Belarus, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said as he met with the employees of Arvibelagro in Lida District on 24 March, BelTA has learned.

“The Ukrainian scenario will not happen in Belarus with me as president. I will not allow a repetition of the Ukrainian scenario in Belarus,” the Belarusian leader said.

According to Alexander Lukashenko, some want to create trouble in Belarus. “Some want to destabilize the situation, and they use our scumbags for that,” the president said. “They were like partisans, digging pits and hiding stuff. They hid arms, rebars, axes, knives, grenades, etc. They say they teach children to be patriotic. Using what? Ball grenades?”

“Some seem to be itching. There is a line that nobody should cross. No one is allowed to break the law and violate the Constitution. If the authorities fail to see this, then there will be a chain reaction which will be very hard to stop. Because millions of people will be involved,” the head of state noted.

Alexander Lukashenko said that a Belarus-born woman living in a Western country gave information that a provocation was being prepared. “Our specialists went there, talked to the woman and she said: I am not afraid of anything, I will write a statement to warn you. That encouraged us to take active measures. I instructed the intelligence services to immediately launch an operation to obtain information about these people, and we found a whole arsenal of weapons,” he noted.

The president remarked that the illegal activities were financed mainly via Lithuania and Poland. “They [Lithuania and Poland] got offended when I spoke about Ukraine, Lithuania and Poland in Mogilev. But why should they if this is true?” the Belarusian leader said. “American and German organizations were channeling the money through Poland and Lithuania, and most of the money remained there. As for those in Belarus, they have been living quite well with villas and luxurious cars,” Alexander Lukashenko said.

“Why do they write: We are not social parasites? If you are not parasites, why are you finding excuses then? They are parasites. They are afraid of being forced to come out of the shadow and declare their property. Where do they take all this money from?” the head of state said.

Alexander Lukashenko stressed that those people, who took to the streets seeking answers to some personal issues, have been used in someone else’s interests. Many people have already realized it and now refuse to take part in the forthcoming similar events. “Even some of the thugs have seen that they are being used. They saw those munitions and said: no, we are not doing this. They stopped participating in these rallies and demonstrations. They understood that the authorities were not scared,” the head of state said.

“The authorities should perform their functions. Once caught scared, they will be in trouble, but this means a much worse situation for you,” the President added.
