The President of Belarus Oleksandr Lukashenko stated that his offer concerning control on the Russian-Ukrainian border and “elections” in Donbas was not supported by the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, as the Head of Belarus said at the press conference in Minsk, Interfax-Ukraine reported.
“I was ready to stand on that border as a border guard considering that Russians and Ukrainians treat me well, and hold elections under Minsk Agreements there… And what? Those who need the war to end, primarily Poroshenko and Ukrainians, started refusing it. They found a reason: Lukashenko is pro-Russian,” the Head of Belarus said.
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.
It should be noted that Russia started its aggression against Ukraine in 2014 with the annexation of Crimea and deployment of combat actions in Donbas.
On January 25, 2017, the Verkhovna Rada recognized Russian Federation as an aggressor.
