In the spring of 2014, President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko proposed that European politicians create a Belarusian-Ukrainian union, of which he would be president. This was stated by ex-President of European Council Donald Tusk, the Polish newspaper Onet.pl reported.
"I have not talked about it before, but there was a situation when Minsk was trying to engage itself as a mediator between the EU, Russia, and Ukraine back in those hot days of the Ukrainian crisis. I got a call from Lukashenko (I was still Poland’s Prime Minister at the time) and he directly offered to convince the EU that he could be a guarantor of a peaceful solution to the Ukrainian problem. He then asked to support his proposal for a Belarusian-Ukrainian union, where he would be the president of both countries," Tusk said.
As the former head of the European Council stressed, Lukashenko hinted that it was the only way to deal with Russian aggression.
As we reported earlier, Lukashenko believes that his country will fall apart if he decides to resign.
