Lukashenko: Belarus to dissociate itself by wall from Ukraine
Belarusian president announced engineering structures to be built on the border to ensure safety
Belarus will dissociate itself from Ukraine with a wall, so a mouse won’t crawl, stated President Lukashenko, Belta.
"They carry guns, machine guns, ammunition, themselves go here. We are strengthening the border. We have it completely shut down, and now erect engineering structures to a mouse not to crawl. We will ensure the safety of my country. I know many Ukrainians who came. We try to provide jobs to them. But we are going to sort everyone very seriously, for bandits who want to destabilize the situation in Belarus not to come here. And those who come to live and work, they are welcome", said Lukashenko.
Also, he promised to punish Belarusians fighting in Donbas. "Some still say that they will come back [from Donbas], they will show. We'll show them so that they will tumble back to Ukraine and through Ukraine to the Black Sea, and maybe further. Do not worry. With those [Belarusian citizens], who are now fighting [in Ukraine], we understand, when they return to the country. I have all warned at the legislative level, we have decided that if you went to fight - it means killing - whether on the side of Donbas or against it, then you would answer", said Lukashenko.
Earlier, Belarus began demarcating the border with Ukraine in Brest region. Before end of the year, part of border in Brest and Malorita areas is planned to be designated by installing about 500 border signs.
