Lukashenko convenes meeting to discuss military security

Lukashenko convenes meeting to discuss military security

MINSK, 4 October (BelTA) – Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko convened a meeting on 4 October to take stock of the military and political situation and to develop response measures, BelTA has learned.

The meeting is attended by the prime minister, the head of the Belarus President Administration, senior officials of the military, security and law enforcement agencies, the commanders of the troops.

“As it was agreed earlier, today we are holding a routine meeting with heads of the military, security and law enforcement agencies in order to jointly analyze the rapidly changing military and political situation and, of course, to decide how we will respond to ongoing developments. First of all, I want to say that there is no emergency. Therefore, there are no reasons for any rumors and fake news," Aleksandr Lukashenko stressed.

At the same time, the situation is heated. The intensity of Russia’s special military operation is not dwindling. The West is actively adding fuel to the fire in the form of military assistance and comprehensive support for the Ukrainian regime, the head of state said.

“Some say that they would like to end the war. Others, on the contrary, take specific steps to show their determination to keep this war going. The position of the Russian Federation is absolutely understandable and clear to us. The president has made it clear more than once: they are ready to sit down at the negotiating table right away and to hold talks in a realistic way proceeding from the current situation. We are aware of systematic deliveries by the United States and other NATO countries of weapons and military equipment through Poland’s Rzeszow airfield. Every day, about a dozen, sometimes more, American transport aircraft arrive there. A number of European countries are trying to show their support for the Ukrainian army and send  old equipment and weapons they do not need.
