The opposition of Belarus headed by Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya, in case of coming to power, is not going to pay back the $1.5 billion loan to Russia agreed by Alexander Lukashenko and Vladimir Putin in Sochi, as Tsikhanouskaya’s Spokesperson Anna Krasulina reported.
Krasulina was asked to tell about the actions of the opposition, in case of the implementation of the scenario of the integration of Belarus with Russia within the Union State.
“We stated very clearly that Alexander Lukashenko is not a legitimate president of the Republic of Belarus anymore that is why any treaties with him, any agreements or signed documents will be fulfilled by the future government of the Republic of Belarus. We warned about it beforehand all partakers before the meeting of Vladimir Putin and Alexander Lukashenko that is why the money that Vladimir Vladimirovich wants to present to Alexander Lukashenko, he gives from himself and personally to Mr. Lukashenko. They will deal with 1.5 billion because the Republic of Belarus will not return money for payment of OMON services, which destroy, suppress, kill and force civilian population,” she said.
Krasulina expressed regret that Putin took such a position in the Belarusian issue.
Earlier, President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin approved the allocation of 1.5 billion dollars in loan to Belarus. Putin made this statement during his talks with Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko in Sochi.
As we reported earlier, Vladimir Putin recognized the presidential elections in Belarus and called them valid.
“We proceed from the assumption that the elections took place. I did it right away. We recognized their legitimacy. I congratulated Alexander Lukashenko on his victory in these elections,” the statement said.
