Belarusian dictator Alexander Lukashenko should stop helping and supporting Russia's military actions against Ukraine, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said at a briefing in Brussels on Oct. 12.

Asked what NATO thinks of the role of the Lukashenko regime in this war, Stoltenberg said:

"Well, I expect that the Lukashenko regime stops being complicit to this war. We have seen how Belarus has been used as a staging area for missile launches, air attacks against Ukraine.”

The secretary general added that "Lukashenko should stop helping and supporting the Russian war efforts.”

Lukashenko announced on Oct. 10 that Russia and Belarus had agreed to deploy a joint regional grouping of troops. Its formation has allegedly already begun.

Earlier on Oct. 4, dictator Lukashenko finally admitted that Belarus is involved in the war against Ukraine.

Also, the dictator said that after the harvest season is over, it is necessary to "clarify" the registries of Belarus’ military registration and enlistment offices and "to call up people in the area, to see their availability.”
