Lukashenko: We need our own government

Lukashenko: We need our own government

MINSK, 17 August (BelTA) – Belarus does not need a foreign government, we need our own government, our own leadership, Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at a rally in the center of Minsk on 16 August, BelTA has learned.

“They offer us a new government. It has already been established abroad. They cannot figure out who will come here to govern. However, we remember history. There were plenty of such governments, and one of them is now ruling in America. We do not need foreign governments. We need our own government, our own leadership and we will elect them,” the president said and received a thunderous ovation.

The participants of the rally chanted support.

“They offer us a new government. They offer NATO soldiers. They want to push us into poverty and whip into submission. Don’t you see that? If someone wants it, count me out. I will never agree on the dismantlement of our state! I will never agree on the destruction of what has been created by us! This will never happen,” the Belarusian leader exclaimed.

These words were welcomed enthusiastically by a cheering crowd.
