MINSK, April 11, 16:53 /ITAR-TASS/. Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said on Friday that Belarus would welcome all Ukrainians who had fled Ukraine because of the current crisis.
“The Ukrainian people are asking us for shelter. We need to think about that. Perhaps, we will have to take in some of our brothers and sisters and we will do that if necessary,” Lukashenko said at a meeting with the workers of the Slutskiye Poyasa (the Slutsk Belts) factory on Friday. “However, it would be better if there was peace and calm there (in Ukraine) so that these nice people could live peacefully. It would be better both for us and for them,” the Belarusian president said.
He criticized the authorities in Ukraine for abandoning, robbing and forgetting their people. “Now they have raised prices, making it impossible for pensioners to live. I do not know how they are going to live there (in Ukraine) now,” Lukashenko stressed.
