Lukashenko announced his readiness to turn Belarus into a military base of the Russian Federation
No one can interfere with the construction of the future of the two peoples, Lukashenko said.
Self-proclaimed President Alexander Lukashenka said in an interview with CNN that in case of external aggression, Belarus will go for an even closer rapprochement with Russia. The two countries will become one military base, Chronicle.info reports with reference to RBC.
Now, according to him, there is not a single foreign base on the territory of the republic, except for two Russian civilian bases.
< p> & # 171; This is a base from the Soviet times, in the Soviet Union was built, for early detection of the launch of nuclear missiles from your territory. And the second & # 8212; the communications base through which the Russian Armed Forces communicate with their fleet in the Atlantic. That's all the bases & # 187; & # 8212; he explained.
They serve about 30-40 people.
& # 171; If necessary, Belarus will turn into a single base of Belarus and Russia, a military base in order to resist your (Western countries & # 8212; ed.) aggression. If suddenly you decide on this, or separate neighboring states. You must clearly understand this & # 187;, & # 8212; Lukashenko said.
He claims that the issue of losing independence of Belarus or its joining Russia is not on the agenda of bilateral relations.
At the same time, according to Lukashenko, no one will not be able to interfere with the construction of the future of the two peoples.
