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.

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.
