President of Belarus Aleksandr Lukashenko claimed that he would not call Russia 'a fraternal state' anymore, only 'a partner'. Lukashenko claimed this at the meeting for relevant cooperation issues with Russia, as the official website of the Belarusian President reports.  

‘I am not calling it a fraternal state because, as I am informed, Russia does not take it. Allegedly, there are new people who don’t accept this notion. So be it, let’s be partners,’ Lukashenko claimed.

'Many agreements have been signed both at the Supreme State Council, and at the Federal Council of Ministers, and bilaterally. Unfortunately, as I often say, they are not all adhered to,’ Lukashenko noted.  

Earlier, Lukashenko said that three Slavic nations have to solve Donbas armed conflict, and history will define the perpetrator.

During the last meeting of Lukashenko and Poroshenko, the latter had to violate the protocol of the meeting to defend Ukraine’s position. 

Russia started the aggression against Ukraine in 2014 with the annexation of Crimea and deployment of combat actions in Donbas. 

On January 25, 2017, the Ukrainian Parliament recognized the Russian Federation as the  aggressor state.
