The self-proclaimed President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko called the Polish city of Bialystok and the Lithuanian Vilnius “Belarusian lands”. 

He made such a statement at the forum of patriotic forces at the Minsk-Arena, according to Lukashenka’s press service .

“Neighbors are given to us by God, like any state. In relations with everyone, we strive for peace and friendship. We have never encroached on someone else’s loaf or a piece of land. Bialystok is a Belarusian land. That Vilno is also a Belarusian city, and the land around. We are not talking about this, “Lukashenka said.

“Intra-confessional balance and interethnic unity are the unshakable foundations of our society. All of us, people living on this land, are the Belarusian people. We have one state, one law, a common historical memory for all. It is inviolable, it is forever,” Lukashenko added.

Lukashenko spoke on the occasion of the Day of National Unity, a holiday that has been celebrated in Belarus since this year on September 17, the day the USSR attacked Poland in 1939, as a result of which the territories of Western Belarus were annexed to the country.

Earlier, as UNIAN wrote, Lukashenko said that he did not want to lose economic relations with Ukraine . He called it “the granary of the Soviet Union” and noted that Kiev, like the whole country, needs potash fertilizers. In his statement, Lukashenka showed his hope for cooperation with Ukraine.

    • Yeah, he needs to read the history of his own country more, and not the Kremlin version.

      “Many early Rus’ principalities were virtually razed or severely affected by a major Mongol invasion in the 13th century, but the lands of modern-day Belarus avoided the brunt of the invasion and eventually joined the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. There are no sources of military seizure, but the annals affirm the alliance and united foreign policy of Polotsk and Lithuania for decades. Trying to avoid the Tatar Yoke, the Principality of Minsk sought protection from Lithuanian princes further north and in 1242, the Principality of Minsk became a part of the expanding Grand Duchy of Lithuania. “

      • Today the Tatars are officially recognized as the true natives of Ukraine. Zelensky is selling Ukraine to the Turks. I have respect for both the Turks and the Tatars, but i would never abandon Slavic Orthodox pride in favor of them.

  • Does Belarus history only go back to 1939? Let me give you a history lesson Luka, below is a map, please point out Belarus for me. According to the map, the whole of Belarus belongs to Poland and Lithuania, Belarus did not exist as a country.
