Lukashenko: Belarus will do everything to stop fratricidal war in Ukraine

Lukashenko: Belarus will do everything to stop fratricidal war in UkraineMINSK, 20 June (BelTA) – Belarus will do everything to stop fratricidal war in Ukraine, President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko said as he met with Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia on 20 June, BelTA has learned.

The head of state stressed that Belarus’ peace-making mission in the regulation of the situation in Ukraine is well known. “Fraternal peoples of Russia, Belarus and Ukraine have the same roots. It hurts when our brothers are in trouble. We will do everything to de-escalate the situation and, if possible, to stop this fratricidal war,” Alexander Lukashenko said.

Belarus appreciates the absence of problems in relations of believers and is going to maintain this state of affairs, the President remarked. The crisis in Ukraine began from the split in the church when spiritual values were defied. All that evolved in a military conflict, the Belarusian leader said.

Alexander Lukashenko thanked Patriarch Kirill for what he is doing for Belarus. Belarus appreciates selfless activities of the Patriarch, his attitude to the country. “I have always appreciated and appreciate it and I am always grateful to you for the good things you are doing for Belarus as a Patriarch and a Russian person,” the President said. Belarus is a Slavonic cradle, the head of state remarked. In his words, Patriarch Kirill has visited Belarus several times and could see with his own eyes that Belarusians cherish their spiritual roots and values.
