Belarus will never pose military threat to Ukraine, Belarus’ Ambassador in Kyiv, Valentyn Velychko, stated.
‘We’ve received straightforward orders from highest state authorities: Belarus will never be a source of military aggression. Belarus has already expressed its support for Ukraine’s territorial integrity numerous times. As for the progress of Ukraine peace talks in Minsk – it’s just a platform, although we’re doing everything to minimize consequences of the conflict’, - Velychko said.
According to the Ambassador, Kyiv and Minsk are interested in good neighboring relations, deeper economic and humanitarian contacts.
Earlier, Russia’s defense Ministry announced deployment of its troops to the west, closer to border with Belarus.
