Besides, Lukashenko believes that in due time, Ukraine failed during the destabilization and collapsed, while Belarus keeps going.
“Everything is done to break the country. Ukraine collapsed. All post-Soviet republics collapse, while Belarus keeps going. They understand perfectly well, excuse me for my indiscretion that it keeps going mostly due to the fact that this Lukashenko hinders. That is why he should be brought down,” the Belarusian leader noted.
After the presidential elections in Belarus on August 9, mass protests took place in the country. The citizens of Belarus did not agree with the results of the counting of votes: Alexander Lukashenko, according to the CEC, received 80.1% of the vote, his main opponent Svetlana Tsikhanouskaya - 10.1%.
As we reported earlier, the countries of the European Union agreed to impose sanctions against Alexander Lukashenko and officials of his regime if the situation in Belarus does not improve.
As we reported, the EU aimed to impose new sanctions against Belarusian officials responsible for the brutal crackdown in the ex-Soviet state. The top diplomats from the bloc's 27 member states met on August 14 to review former restrictions against Belarus party leadership that the EU removed in 2016, citing progress in improving the rule of law.
Later, it was noted that Ukraine is going to join the EU in the imposition of sanctions against Belarus.
Besides, Foreign Minister of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba stated about the stop of contacts of Kyiv with official Minsk.
