KIEV, August 18. /ITAR-TASS/. About 26,000 Ukrainians have left for Belarus in June-July 2014, Belarusian Ambassador to Ukraine Valentin Velichko said on Monday.
Five hundred people have applied for refugee status, he said. “First of all, people need employment. At least 1,500 Ukrainians have a permanent resident card that allows them to apply for a job and study. Almost 3,000 people are waiting for temporary asylum,” Velichko said.
Commenting on the situation in eastern Ukraine, he said, “There will be no aggression against Ukraine from the Belarusian territory.” “Moreover, we won’t allow a third party to unleash aggression against friendly Ukraine from the territory of Belarus,” Velichko said.
Belarus’ position on Ukraine remains unchanged, he said. “There can be no federalization, Ukraine is an integral state, and all problems should be solved in negotiations,” he said.
