“We made a decision to strengthen the border with Ukraine. We see how many trouble come from there to Belarus, including arms. We need to close the border. But not for the decent people, for bandits who bring arms,” Lukashenko claimed.
“We need the number. Let’s see. But not in mass, not hundreds and thousands of people will watch it; one person where he needs to see. Without the chefs. There should be minimum chiefs,” Belarusian president added.
Earlier Petro Poroshenko, the President of Ukraine and Aleksandr Lukashenko, the President of Belarus held the phone conversation and discussed the economic and cultural cooperation of the countries.
Also, Lukashenko claimed that Belarus accepted at least 160, 000 refugees from Ukraine during the Donbas Conflict. He also spoke on the settlement of the Donbas Conflict for many times, including his readiness to send the Belarusian peacekeepers to Donbas.
