MINSK, October 10. /TASS/. Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko calls for stopping the bloodshed in Ukraine’s south-east and for observing the Minsk agreements on settlement of the situation.
“I believe, everyone who is present here will support me as it is necessary to stop as soon as possible clashes in Ukraine’s south-east, to stop the bloodshed and observe the agreements reached in Minsk,” he told the summit of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). All disputes should be settled peacefully, he said.
The president called unacceptable the situation where “practically in central Europe, combat actions continue.” Ukraine is not a mere part of the tension, as the military actions affect directly the economic situation both in Ukraine and in the entire post-Soviet region, he said.
It is unacceptable to have vital issues settled far away — be that in Berlin or Milano, Lukashenko added.
