Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenski today warned the Belarusian head of state, Alexander Lukashenko, not to drag his people into Russia’s war against Ukraine.
“You must not drag Belarus into Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine and the violation of all international treaties, international law as a whole,” he said at a joint press conference with Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, quoted by the ukrinform agency.
He described as “dangerous” the signal given off by Lukashenko’s statements about a united army of Belarus and Russia and about the decision taken “long ago” to participate in what Moscow describes as a “special operation”.
“I think we will see the result of these signals,” he added, saying that in general he finds what Lukashenko is doing dangerous for the neighboring Belarusian people.
On the other hand, he stressed that the launch of Russian missiles against Ukraine from Belarusian territory is not a secret to anyone.
