He stressed that this topic appeared after “the Poles turned to the Americans and asked them to bring them nuclear weapons to Poland.” “I told the President of Russia: why are we pretending that nothing is happening? We consulted for a long time and came to the conclusion that we must be ready to respond mirror to them within a day. To do this, we need to prepare, and we will prepare. We will we do not threaten, we do not blackmail anyone,” Lukashenka stressed.
Lukashenka recalled how, after the collapse of the USSR, nuclear weapons were withdrawn from Belarus to Russia, and stressed that “it was not Lukashenka who made the decision,” but he had to fulfill the agreements of the previous leadership of the country.
“We gave our weapons there (to Russia – ed.), and today I have the right to ask and demand from the president of fraternal Russia to make them afraid to cross the state border of the Republic of Belarus. Which I did,” Lukashenka said.
