Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko commented on the conflict in Ukraine during the press conference for the Russian regional mass media on November 17, BelTA has learned.
“I have recently told Vladimir Vladimirovich (Putin. – BelTA’s note) that it is needed to do something to start a reverse process and restore the relations. There will be no winners in that war,” Alexander Lukashenko said. “It is needed to improve the situation today. We are ready to play any role to restore peace there.”
The head of state emphasized that the longer the conflict will last, the worse impact it will have on Ukraine and Russia, “The people staying there (in the zone of conflict. – BelTA’s note) are suffering more than anybody else. How are these people to blame?” the President asked a rhetorical question. “Of course, it is terrible to wait for something to explode nearby. But uncertainty is even worse. These people do not know what will happen tomorrow or the day after tomorrow.”
