MISNK, March 12. /ITAR-TASS/. Belarus expresses concern about the situation in Ukraine, President Alexander Lukashenko said on Wednesday.
“Of course, we are concerned about the situation in Ukraine, as this is our country, these are our people and these are our brothers. I should say the Ukrainian people deserve better than what has happened in Ukraine,” the Belarusian president said.
“The heroic Ukrainian people struggle against Nazism. We struggled together and we won in the Great Patriotic War,” he said.
Trade turnover between Belarus and Ukraine reached about $7 billion. “This proves the closest economic relations between Belarus and Ukraine,” Lukashenko said.
He said Belarus’ position on the events in Ukraine would remain unchanged. “Our position is consolidated and united. The Belarusian foreign minister has been instructed to inform the world community and leaders of other countries about Belarus’ position,” Lukashenko said.
