President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said Belarusian dictator Alexander Lukashenko would be making a “big mistake” by sending troops to Ukraine, BBC reported on Feb. 16.
“I hope (Belarus) won't join (the war),” he said.
“If it does, we will fight and we will survive.”
He stated that the Lukashenko’s regime would be making a “big mistake” if it again allowed Belarus to be used for an offensive by Russian forces.
Earlier, Belarusian dictator Alexander Lukashenko said that he would send the Belarusian army to fight against Ukraine if “at least one soldier comes to the territory of Belarus to kill.”
“I am ready to fight together with the Russians from the territory of Belarus only in one case so far: if at least one soldier comes from there to the territory of Belarus to kill my people,” said Lukashenko.
Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council Oleksiy Danilov said that Russia will continue to persuade Lukashenko to directly participate in the war against Ukraine.
The press secretary of Russian dictator Vladimir Putin, Dmitry Peskov, said that the meeting of the two dictators is scheduled on Feb. 17. He didn’t speak about the format of negotiations nor the topics for discussion.
