VLADIVOSTOK, April 13, 16:31 /ITAR-TASS/. Belarus is ready to welcome refugees from Ukraine if necessary, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said in a short interview with a weekly news summary programme on the Russian NTV channel on Sunday.

“We draw definite conclusions that refugees may come to our country as there are already some thousands of names on the lists (of those who already are in Belarus Itar-Tass),” Lukashenko said specifying that “they are about 2,000 people.”

Lukashenko said that lots of ethnic Belarusians lived in northern Ukraine.

“If they flow in, it will be very difficult for us,” he said. “But they are humans, they have children and so we cannot put up a fence for stopping them. But the most important thing is that criminals might attempt to infiltrate the country as well. So our main lesson is to avoid it in Belarus.
