Quote: “Our armed forces… how many troops could we deploy there, 35,000-40,000? They won’t solve the problem [in the war against Ukraine – ed.].”
Details: The Belarusian dictator claimed that direct involvement by Belarusian armed forces would only “make things worse”. “That is not Belarus’ role in this conflict,” he added.
“I have never denied that we do participate in the special military operation [the war against Ukraine – ed.] in many ways. But we don’t get involved, we don’t kill anybody, we don’t send personnel there. Because there is no need to,” Lukashenko claimed.
Lukashenko stressed once again that it is necessary to “talk about peace and negotiate sensibly” with Russia.
