GRODNO REGION, November 4 (Itar-Tass) —— NATO was worse than the Nazi in its treatment of ex-Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said on Friday.
“There was an act of aggression and the national leaders, including Gaddafi, were killed. He was not killed on a battlefield. NATO security services helped abduct the national leader,” he said.
He was tortured and shot and treated worse than the Nazi did in their time, he said.
Libya was destroyed as a sovereign state, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said on Friday.
“Armed conflicts go on in various parts of the globe. Thousands of people die while appeals for democracy are being made,” he said.
“We are constantly witnessing the wish of the Western developed countries to take full control over natural resources of the planet,” he said. There are massive air strikes and civil wars are orchestrated, he said.
The goals are achieved with political, economic and information instruments, Lukashenko said. “Information attacks are integral elements. They destabilize countries and incite public protests. Then commando forces get involved. They complete the defeat of a country under the camouflage of public protests and jointly with the ‘fifth column’. The Arab revolutions and the destruction of Libya as a sovereign state are illustrative examples,” he said.
