“If we take the current situation in Belarus as a starting point, then I am still opposing the introduction of any economic sanctions against Belarusian companies or sectors of the economy. We have fundamental political disagreements with Belarus, but as of now, I emphasize - as of now, I do not see the fundamental need for economic sanctions," Kuleba noted.
According to the official, trade is equally important to both countries, and Ukraine will continue to follow this logic.
As we reported earlier, Vladimir Makei, the Foreign Minister of Belarus, stated that the country intended to introduce sanctions against Ukraine's officials for their support of EU sanctions against the regime of Alexander Lukashenko.
"We will see how things go next. We will not leave any of Ukraine's actions without the response, as long as they are aimed against the Belarusian government," the official claimed.
