Alexander Lukashenko called Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy “a random person in power.” He also spoke about V.A. President in 2014, Alexandra Turchinov.
This was discussed in a conversation with the odious Kremlin propagandist Dmitry Kiselev.
“Before the start of the war in Donbass, you remember, there was Sasha Turchinov, a former Komsomol worker, by religion, it seems, a Protestant and all that. I knew him well, and we met with him then. I knew him as a person. Well, what kind of a politician is he ?!
Then Kiselev interrupted him and clarified that Turchinov was the commandant of the Maidan and “led a coup.” Then Putin’s propagandist continued that, they say, Turchinov “started the war in Donbass.”https://t.me/pul_1/4082?embed=1
Lukashenka only replied to this: “You know better, you worked there. These are facts. But I think that in politics this is an absolutely random person.”
“And Volodya Zelensky today turned out to be an absolutely random person, although he is the head of state and all that,” the scandalous politician added.
As UNIAN wrote, in an interview with the propaganda media of the Russian Federation, Alexander Lukashenko said that he considers Crimea “de jure” and “de facto” Russian territory . Also, the “president” of Belarus, unrecognized by the West, specified that he intends to visit the occupied peninsula in the near future.
War in eastern Ukraine
Russia began an armed conflict in Donbass in April 2014 – after the occupation of Crimea by Russian troops.
The provocateurs controlled by the Kremlin began to incite the local population and participate in pro-Russian actions themselves.
Soon, the “protests” controlled by the Russian special services developed into the seizure of buildings of local self-government bodies and ended with the proclamation of “republics”, the legitimacy of which is recognized only by Moscow and its close satellites.
For the occupation of Crimea and certain territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions, the United States and the EU imposed a number of sanctions against the Kremlin.
Putin himself denies the involvement of his country in resolving the conflict in Donbass, claiming that there are no Russian troops in ORDLO.
At the same time, Russia is trying to persuade Ukraine to negotiate directly with the militants, stating that it is only a “third party” in order to absolve itself of responsibility for the started aggression and avoid tougher sanctions.
