“It is our main ally. We will always be together no matter how much we argue or fight,” Lukashenko said.
He reminded that there was a period of difficulties in the relations of the countries; for example, in the sphere of military education. Thus, the Belarusian military men, who got the education in Russia, were equaled to the foreign specialist. But, according to him, these issues were solved soon.
Earlier, Lukashenko stated that he would not call Russia a fraternal state anymore but only a partner. Besides, the Belarusian president expressed the opinion that Moscow wants to incorporate Belarus into the composition of Russia on the pretext of “deep integration”.
Moreover, President of Belarus Aleksandr Lukashenko has requested the government to work out the issue of the alternatives of the oil supply through Baltic countries instead of Russia.
