Lukashenko assured that the opponents plan to disperse the forces of the Belarusian military, as well as distract people from the internal situation by straining the situation on the external border. “Military support is evident — the movement of NATO troops to the borders. They are all moving to drag the supposedly new President here, ” the President said, adding that if they bring in troops, the country can be put an end to.

According to him, the “mess” in Belarus was planned by the United States, and the Europeans “played along”with them. He is sure that a special center was created near Warsaw, and some Belarusians were paid or “screwed up”.

At the same time, Lukashenko assured that he has a full understanding with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin regarding the situation in the Republic.
