Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko called the situation in neighbouring countries "unfavourable" and warned of NATO troops in Ukraine, as he discussed border security at a meeting with security officials in Minsk on Monday.
"The situation in the neighbouring countries is unfavourable for us. The leadership of these countries has embarked on a course of confrontation with Belarus," said Lukashenko.
According to the president, the United States is creating ‘actual bases under the guise of training centres’ in Ukraine.
"They are dragging NATO troops there, to Ukraine. They create actual bases under the guise of training centres. The United States is creating bases in Ukraine. It is clear that we need to respond to this," said Lukashenko.
Lukashenko also added that he and Russian President Vladimir Putin have already agreed that actions should be taken to avoid an ‘unacceptable situation right on the border of Belarus and Russia’ in the future.
SOT, Aleksander Lukashenko, Belarusian President (Russian): "Not only did our runaways run there, sorry for the tautology, but also training camps are being created there in growing numbers, where they purposefully teach runaways and not only them how to work in Belarus, according to special services. Weapons mostly come from Ukraine – and we have seen them and the border guards too. Weapons come from Ukraine. Caches have already been found there, near our borders. If these caches are for events on Ukraine territory, then they shouldn’t have been dragged to our border – they could have hidden somewhere else. It’s clear; we see manifestations of unacceptable actions against Belarus. A lot has already been said about it. So, the situation in the neighboring countries is unfavourable for us. The leadership of these countries has embarked on a course of confrontation with Belarus. This is the main thing for us. Therefore, we will oversee the current situation on the border and pay special attention to the Ukrainian section. You see, they are dragging NATO troops there, in Ukraine. They are creating actual bases under the guise of training centres. The United States is creating bases in Ukraine. It is clear that we need to respond to this. They don’t hear our concern. It is no secret that the Russian President and I have held consultations on this issue and have agreed that some actions should be taken there. Otherwise, tomorrow we will have an unacceptable situation right on the border of Belarus and Russia. Up to the placement of missiles of the appropriate range."
