President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko called the situation with the coronavirus just a "screen". He believes that behind this "screen" the global players are trying to change the world order. He told about this in an interview with foreign TV channels, which was broadcasted by 112 Ukraine.
He added that due to the situation with the coronavirus, the planet is plunging into a systemic crisis.
"Many media outlets call the coronavirus the main reason for what is happening. I repeat: this is a screen, hiding behind which global players are once again trying to remake the world in their own way. It is clear that they have plans in the post-Soviet space, including Belarus. Paradoxically, this is a weighty argument that confirms that the Belarusian state has political weight and serious economic potential," said Alexander Lukashenko.
Earlier Lukashenko said that Belarusian doctors who left to work in Europe would not be allowed back into the country. He added that in this way "everyone should be put in their place."
"This is a historical moment. The country will become a nuclear power," Lukashenko said in comments broadcast on state television.
"The Astravets nuclear power station is a new step into the future, towards ensuring the energy security of the state."
The Belarusian nuclear power plant with two VVER-1200 reactors with a total installed electrical capacity of 2,400 was built by Russian state-owned firm Rosatom and financed by Moscow with a $10 billion loan.
