MINSK, July 12 (BelTA) – Political circles in the United States have crossed the red line in their rhetoric and are beginning to play with fire, BelTA has learned from Nikolai Shchekin, head of the Department of Sociology of Public Administration at the Institute of Sociology of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus.
“Our President has repeatedly stressed that Belarus stands for a peaceful settlement of the conflict in Ukraine and has taken all measures to peacefully resolve the situation since its inception. Moreover, it was Alexander Lukashenko who presented a number of peace initiatives and personally participated in many negotiations. The collective West must finally understand that the head of state will defend his people and not allow the sacred thing to be encroached upon – the sovereignty and independence of the country. It is clear that many in the West do not like this. They don’t like that the head of state’s actions have thwarted blitzkrieg attempts and cooled the hotheads a bit. Therefore, the militant rhetoric of the United States is aimed at undermining the security of Europe and provoking large-scale hostilities,” Nikolai Shchekin said.
Belarus will not allow itself to be threatened and stands ready to retaliate. “The political circles of the United States and the Western collective in general have crossed the red line in their rhetoric and are starting to play with fire. The West must remember that Belarus keeps its gunpowder dry. At the same time, the president has always been a strong supporter of friendship and unity of the three Slavic peoples – Russians, Belarusians and Ukrainians,” he stressed.
“The collective West ignores the essence of our country: the people of Belarus fully support our president’s aspirations to bring peace and reduce tensions. The unity of the Belarusian people and the head of state will become a cold shower for the Polish, Lithuanian, Ukrainian and American leaders. We see that the lack of independence, the corruption and the venality of the Ukrainian leaders are pushing the country into the abyss. Of course, we cannot silently watch Western elites steal and destroy a brotherly nation. In this regard, Zelensky must urgently engage in a new stage of negotiations in the name of peace and the future of his country. Slavic peoples must shape their future by themselves,” said Nikolai Shchekin.
